You can fix the GPG key issue by using:

curl -sS | gpg --import -

Local files playback works without ffmpeg-compat-57, even though deb package "recommends" artifacts from it.

No, don't use pamac/paman for that. Simply overriding the DLAGENTS on the PKGBUILD solves the issue. I didn't test yet if adding --retry to curl is enough, but I had success with wget.

I was able to resolve the download issue by using the --hotedit feature of my AUR helper (Aura) to edit the PKGBUILD, and add the following line:

DLAGENTS=("http::/usr/bin/wget %u")

Which causes it to use wget (must be installed on your system) to download the file. Wget successfully retries and resumes the download to cope with whatever their server is up to.

Is anyone else getting download issues for the .deb file? It would start to download, but around the ~23mb mark it would error out with a Network Error no matter how many attempts have been made.

Yes. The workaround is to open the Pamac GUI, search "spotify 1:" and install through the GUI. My 'paman build spotify' was also having download issues.

Not needing to install flatpak.

What are the benefits of runing this AUR package vs. the flatpak version of Spotify?

j-james commented on 2021-04-13 04:52

@grazzolini: Yes, I've also noticed exactly that.

Ever since a couple of versions ago I have been having issues to download the .deb file. The server will cut the download at various points. I've switch to using wget on DLAGENTS, because it does handle retries (I guess curl's --retry should do it too), but I have been wondering if more people have been having this issue.

It is a beta program with random opt-in. I also got the new interface on both PCs where I am running Spotify.

ceri commented on 2021-04-10 11:13


I think the new interface is server side. My spotify install hasn't updated since March 27 and I have the horrible UI, so it must be partly server side.

Edit: confirmed is server side
