Install Spotify Client on Pi Model B

Samuel Forestier — 17 December 2013
If you want to use Spotify on a Raspberry, there is two ways.
Firstly, you can install Pi MusicBox, a modified distribution adapted for Spotify, or choose another method: install Despotify (you'll need a Premium account).

We'll begin install some libraries required:
# apt-get install libao-dev libtool git libssl-dev libmpg123-dev libvorbis-dev libncursesw5-dev subversion
Now, we need to download the software from the Web:
$ svn co https://despotify.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/despotify despotify
We move into the directory downloaded:
$ cd despotify/src/
We compile:
$ make
We run the installation:
# make install
You can now launch this Client with:
$ despotify-simple <username> <password>
