Spotify 15.04 – Fix Spotify Stopped Working on Latest Ubuntu

15.04spotify

I installed the latest Ubuntu today, 15.04. Spotify has stopped working. How can it be made to work again?

The Unity bar flashes green 4 or 5 times and then stops flashing. There are no error messages. It was installed successfully and played well on 14.10 till the upgrade a few hours ago. It just does not appear on the screen.

There is a tutorial so you can fix it (beneath reinstalling). Just execute these two commands, it worked for me:

$ wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libg/libgcrypt11/libgcrypt11_1.5.4-2ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i libgcrypt11_1.5.4-2ubuntu1.1_amd64.deb
