Having recently upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 I experienced some problems with playback on Spotify. And for those of you who didn’t know, Spotify does work on Ubuntu if you run it using Wine.
The problem I was experiencing was that every now and then play back would just stop and then if I tried to play another song it would be really poor quality and it would eventually just stop completely.
To fix this I did the following:
- Uninstalled wine
- Added the latest WineHQ APT Repository to software sources, by following this tutorial
- Re-installed wine v1.2
- Re-installed spotify by running the command
sudo aptitude remove wine
sudo apt-get install wine1.2
sudo wine "Spotify Installer.exe"
Hope that helps, if not then please let me know
