Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. For those who don’t know yet, CuteSpotify is a Spotify client written in QT, enabling users to search and play music from the Spotify database, manage playlists and others.
The latest version available is CuteSpotify 188.8.131.52, which has been recently released, coming with the above changes and improvements:
- Fixes detection of WLAN vs 2G/3G connection
- Adds an option to clear the cache and offline storage when logged out (accessible via a pull down menu on the login page)
- Adds shuffle and repeat switches to a push up menu underneath the small player view.
In this article I will show you how to install CuteSpotify 184.108.40.206 on Jolla’s Sailfish OS.
There are two installation methods, one from the GUI and one from the command line interface. I prefer the terminal method, because I find it easier to keep the applications up to date, with the needed repos added to my system. And because I am a CLI Linux maniac. : )
Installation method 1: From the GUI.
Since Unofficial Together App is available via OpenRepos.net, you can easily download the app and install it directly from the file manager, via double-click.
Download CuteSpotify 220.127.116.11
Installation method 2: In the geek way, via zypper.
Since Sailfish OS is pure openSUSE, you have to switch to developer mode, install zypper, add the repository and key, update the system and install CuteSpotify app. Like this:
# pkcon install zypper
# zypper ar -f http://sailfish.openrepos.net/elleo/personal-main.repo
# rpm --import http://sailfish.openrepos.net/openrepos.key
# zypper refresh
# zypper install harbour-cutespotify
To uninstall The CuteSpotify, you have to install zypper (if you haven’t installed it already) and uninstall the app via zypper :
# pkcon install zypper
# zypper remove harbour-cutespotify
Installation method 3: In the geek way, via pkcon and ssu.
From the developer mode, execute the following command in your terminal, one by one:
# ssu addrepo elleo http://sailfish.openrepos.net/elleo/personal/main
# ssu updaterepos
# pkcon refresh
# pkcon install harbour-cutespotify
To uninstall The Emoji Keyboard App via pkcon, do the following:
# pkcon remove harbour-cutespotify
For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications.
While apps with native Sailfish OS support can be installed via the Jolla Store and OpenRepos.net, Android apps can be installed via the same Jolla Store, or via F-Droid, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
