The Spotify client is available through WINE or natively through the AUR. I’ll walk you through the AUR way.

1. Download the Spotify package from the AUR. [Spotify AUR]

wget https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/sp/spotify/spotify.tar.gz

2. Unpack the package and compile.


tar -zxvf spotify.tar.gz

cd spotify/

makepkg -s

The “-s” switch will use pacman to resolve any dependencies.

3. Install the compile package.

pacman -U spotify-0.9.4.183-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
