    Spotify through VPN

    While on Windows I was able to download this free VPN software called "Spotflux" that enabled me to use Spotify, but I can't seem to find the equivalent for Ubuntu. All VPN clients that I find are only for the browser. Am I stuck using the Spotify web app or is there a client of such for Ubuntu?
    I think about more than I forget, but I don't go around fire expecting not to sweat.

    Ubuntu (or newer ones for sure) have VPN abilities built right in. You should find them in the network icon on the menu bar and selecting "VPN Connections...". Assuming you know the VPN server and its credentials, you should be up and running right away.

    Out of the box, I know PPTP is supported, but if this isn't the protocol that you used, you can install additional packages which offer the feature.

    You could use a package manager like Synaptic to find various packages which offer a daemon or client which integrates and manages VPNs from your system if you're using a version of Ubuntu that might not have this.
