Spotify Linux Client Upgrader

So, it appears that Spotify haven’t gotten around to releasing their latest client for Linux unless you’re running Ubuntu (or Debian?).

So, I had a quick look at the contents of the .deb files and determined that it should be easy enough to get it to work in Fedora.

I had a quick go, and got it working, and wrote a script.

So here is that script for everyone, all it basically does is extracts the .deb files, then unpacks the tar files into the correct places.

You have to run this as root, or run it via sudo as it unpacks files into places only root can venture, such as /usr/bin and /usr/share.

Take a look at the comments in the script before running it.

Let me know if you have any problems and I’ll take a look, but no promises.
