Hi, I just installed Fedora 28 on to my Lenovo X1, and I'm trying to get Spotify to run. I keep getting the following message:

The Application eu.tiliado.NuvolaAppSpotify/x86_64/stable requires the org.gnome.Platform/x86_64/3.28 which was not found

What do I need to do? I like Fedora so far but I need my Spotify.

Run your system updates and try again. It's saying you don't have Gnome installed, did you use the default Fedora or a Spin?

You could also got to and follow those instructions to install Fedy. Fedy is an app that gives you access to one-click-installs of many applications/tweaks/themes/utilities that are popular and/or are normally harder to install for new users. Spotify is one such app with a single-click-install.

This sounds like you are running Spotify as flatpak from flathub, right? How did you install it?

I was trying to install it via these instructions:

It kept telling me that The Application eu.tiliado.NuvolaAppSpotify/x8664/stable requires the org.gnome.Platform/x8664/3.28 which was not found

I do have GNOME, I did a standard install

I installed Fedy and was able to get Spotify to run. However, I am curious why the other means didn't run and what that message means.

@florian: Is this a bug in flatpak? Should it not install dependencies automatically?

seems like you installed Spotify as flatpak, but didn't install it dependences, run this command to install the missing packages

flatpak install flathub org.gnome.Platform/x86_64/3.28

I got the following when I attempted that: Unable to load summary from remote flathub: GPG verification enabled, but no signatures found (use gpg-verify=false in remote config to disable)

Did you run

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub
