Tempestuous, no such animal. In the meantime I'll look elsewhere..

PS - With a little folder renaming, Spotify continues to work with Slacko's FF 27 pet, sans menu launch.

It's gotta be an environment variable somewhere..

Confused Odd.. After a reboot she launches.

If I kill it after initial launch and login, the second round doesn't open full-screen.

When attempting to go to full-screen, its window simply shifts down.

I've gotta stretch everything open then exit from the taskbar while holding down Ctrl in order to open full screen again.

A truly *bizarre* program.

I must have been delusional thinking I could question someone that's not here for a working solution.

Razz Duh..

What I didn't mention was that I don't have a Spotify account, so when I launch the application I only get as far as the login prompt. So I rely on Semme's information regarding necessary Firefox version, and requirement for GConf.
To this end I have updated the instructions in the first post, and modified my compatibility dotpet for Firefox libs in Slacko. (The symlinks now point to /usr/lib/firefox).

Big Guy, you may wanna make this #4. It's for anyone running the build Slacko shipped with.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
mv /usr/lib/firefox-17.0.11 /usr/lib/firefox
rm -f /usr/bin/firefox
ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
exit

Furthermore, a reboot's not only a good idea, it's *absolutely* essential for a menu launch.

... but didn't you say (or suggest) that the version of Firefox included in Slacko 5.7 is no good for Spotify?

I had to be thorough and perform a second test. This one found the 17 libs suitable.

There's just one problem with renaming the directory of Slacko's original Firefox installation - if the user has already installed a more recent Firefox, it's likely this installation will be overwritten by the old Firefox!

So my spotify-fix-Slacko5.7-Firefox.pet now contains this post-install script -
Code:
#!/bin/sh
if [ ! -f /usr/lib/firefox/firefox ];then
mv /usr/lib/firefox-17.0.11 /usr/lib/firefox
rm -f /usr/bin/firefox
ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
fi

You will see that this script renames the original firefox installation directory only if a new installation of Firefox is not found.

As you're the packager, that should work for most folks.

I renamed my firefox folder firefox again, installed the fix pet successfully and ran the 183 spotify pet. No joy.

To be able to help, we need more information. Way more information.
It's essential that you launch spotify from a terminal, and report any error messages you see.

There's no spotify to run. Soon after I launched the i386 pet it said that it failed to install, and the yellow "please wait, processing" thing stays on my desktop indefinitely and slows things down.

What was the MD5 on your download?

Semme is on the right track - the download of the spotify dotpet is probably corrupt.
The correct md5sum is 35975189837e01cc32f22fc5bcf4ebca
but I have revised the dotpet once or twice since it was first posted, so it's hard to know if this applies to ribblle's download.

The safe thing to do is download again, and for complete confidence perform the download with the commandline utility wget
So open a console and do this -
Code:
wget http://www.smokey01.com/tempestuous/spotify-client-i386-0.9.4.183.pet

Now use ROX to install the dotpet, which will be found in /root

I just did a clean boot to the Slacko 5.7.0 CD now, downloaded the dotpet (with Firefox 17.0.11)
and as you can see, the installation was successful -

It successfully installed, but puppy wouldn't reboot or shutdown (might have been lag) so I forced it to turn off. Spotify isn't in multimedia, but the pet says it's already installed and when i rrun it in the terminal i get: "spotify: error while loading shared libraries: libnss3.so.1d: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
