spotify- added to Gentoo Overlay

Some weeks ago Spotify released a preview of their new discovery features and gave some people the option to test it on Windows or Mac. Last Thursday they released their discovery features for the linux version.

As I have not yet found an updated ebuild for the new Spotify version, I made one on my own. It was not as simple as before as the Spotify package now installs everything in /opt/spotify/spotify-client (which is perfect for re-packaging). Using the current method of LD_PRELOADing works like a charm.

There are several ways to install the package:

  1. Use my overlay as described in the README and run emerge '=media-sound/spotify-'

  2. Download the ebuild directly and install it manually.
