Install the Official Spotify Client with Dark Theme in Ubuntu 14.04

Spotify Dark Theme

The recent changes in Spotify rules of having a FREE 30 day trial for Premium account made my decision to give it a try again, now am using it for free but with the ads of course.  One thing I like is the new design using the dark theme just like the UI of Adobe products like Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. I hope Spotify will also add a control to select how dark the UI will be just like in some of Adobe apps.

I’m still building my playlists with the big library of music I can still listen to the music of the 90’s and I’m very thankful to Spotify for giving us this free service.

To install Spotify on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS open a new terminal and enter the following commands.

The first adds the official Spotify repository to your software sources list:
sudo sh -c ‘echo “deb stable non-free” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list’

Add the secure key for the repository to prevent errors being thrown up:
sudo apt-key adv –keyserver –recv-keys 94558F59

Finally, update and install the application:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spotify-client-qt

Alright fire up the application and enjoy music along with the visual experience.
