Install Spotify on Manjaro 21

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Spotify on Manjaro 21. For those of you who didn’t know, Spotify is a music streaming platform providing DRM-protected content to its subscribers. Spotify operates under a freemium model (basic services are free, while additional features are offered via paid subscriptions). Spotify makes its revenues by selling premium streaming subscriptions to users and advertising placements to third parties.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Spotify streaming player on a Manjaro 21 (Ornara).
