I would like to know how to install Spotify in Vector please.
I have previously successfully installed it to Ubuntu using the instructions found below which read as follows.

http://www.spotify.com/us/download/previews/

This is a preview build of Spotify for Linux. As a preview release this version is still unsupported, but we're running it ourselves and will try to make sure it keeps pace with its Mac and Windows siblings.

So how do you get it? We've packaged it for Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu.
Debian

# 1. Add this line to your list of repositories by
#    editing your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free

# 2. If you want to verify the downloaded packages,
#    you will need to add our public key
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 4E9CFF4E

# 3. Run apt-get update
sudo apt-get update

# 4. Install spotify!
sudo apt-get install spotify-client


Any suggestions appreciated.
Thank you in advance

Are you familiar with installing an application under wine.  Spotify gets a gold rating at WineHQ apps database.

I have used wine in the past but I have never had a consistent experience with it, and seeing as i had spotify's linux port working under lubuntu and ubuntu I figured that there might be a simple way to make it work directly under vector.

BTW i have just moved 2 machines to v7 one light and one gold and i am stoked.
