Ubuntu Spotify Scope is a Unity Launcher plugin and an add-on to the Unity Music lens that allows users to quickly search and access Spotify songs, filtered by Spotify's generes and decades sections.

To install the Unity Spotify Scope plugin in your Ubuntu operating system, open a terminal window (hit the CTRL+ALT+T key combination) and paste the following commands (one by one, hitting Enter after each one):

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y unity-scope-spotify


You will also need to install the official Spotify client (spotify-client-qt) and restart your session after the installation.

Be aware that it is available ONLY for Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin).
