Ubuntu – Spotify not starting since updating to 15.04


Since updating to to 15.04 my spotify will not open. Any thoughts?
I have tried the lib 11 solution but that has not worked

  • This is caused by libgcrypt . You can solve this by:

    wget http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/libg/libgcrypt11/libgcrypt11_1.5.0-5+deb7u3_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libgcrypt11_1.5.0-5+deb7u3_amd64.deb

    If this doesn't work then purge spotify and install again from this repository.

    sudo apt-get purge spotify*


    sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free"
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 94558F59
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install spotify-client
