Ceiling crack on popcorn style ceiling

15 ft long crack on popcorn style ceiling. To Fix? I was told to widen the crack / wipe clean and apply some joint compound or caulking and then dab it with a wet rag to try and blend it in and then prime and the paint. Is this correct? Thanks An Advance

The best way to fix the crack is to scrape off enough popcorn to allow you to tape and mud it and then retexture. Etching out a groove and filling it with caulk would be easier and less messy, expect the repair to show some.
