I can clearly see the file in the music folder (also in the SO web browser) so saving it onto the snakeoil computer is not the issue.

Are you sure it's the music folder, not playlist?
Could be a file permissions issue, perhaps try:
Code:
sudo cat /media/music/gpg | sudo apt-key add -

if the file is saved to the playlist share, do
Code:
sudo cat /media/playlist/gpg | sudo apt-key add -


* Assuming you saved the file as gpg (if it's another name, replace gpg with your saved file name)

It does not matter in this case.

Try the above first, if it doesn't work, do a screencap of the file browser, and we'll find out.

Cheers.

Hi agent_kith,

Here's how it looks... 

The file is there as far as I can tell, but all of the suggested commands return "no such file or directory"

Aha, there's a .txt file extension.
Try this and it should work now.
Code:
sudo cat /media/music/gpg.txt | sudo apt-key add -

No problems. We all have to start somewhere.

Got to say, the COVID lock down has severely limited my music purchases. Looks like I will explore the Spotify streaming route eventually. my car (via Android auto) has spotify, and I'm still on the free version. The audio quality isn't as good IMHO, will I get better quality if I get a paid subscription?

I'm a n00b too as I havn't really used Spotify before Blush... I

The premium version has higher resolution, though still not what could be defined as "Hi-Res".

That said spotify is probably often mistreated by cheap streamers of bluetooth speakers etc.  

I have a dedicated spotify player (wouldn't work to tell the kids to log into snakeoil (well, truth be told they'd get the hang of it in no time, but I don't want them poking around in there) to switch between upmpdcli to play from the NAS and spotify so this way they're just separate channels on the amp) also on the main system built on the intel atom DM2800 with snakeoil and it sounds very good.

It's extremely practical for new music, music I can't or won't buy, party lists and the ever changing taste of the kids. The premium version also lets you download musc to your mobile which is useful when flying (not that we're doing any of that anytime soon) or any other time you need to be offline. 

I wouldn't throw out the NAS or the vinyl but I also find it too restrictive NOT to have a streamer service available.

Interesting, what distro are you using? Raspberry Pi, or something else?
just run this then to add the key, hopefully it'll work for your setup.
Code:
curl https://download.spotify.com/debian/pubkey_0D811D58.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
