You can fix the GPG key issue by using:

curl -sS | gpg --import -

It all seems to work great, but I had to download the .deb manually: curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired

I also had a crash, spotify said:

[0831/] GPU process isn't usable. Goodbye.
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

But it worked when running

spotify --no-zygote

Hey, whatever works

Don't know why, sporify is on my notebook and closing make it minimize doesn't seem to work

@iamzimy, nope. That's what I meant about the title bar. It just stays stuck saying Spotify, and the icon is X11's.

I'm sure Spotify devs are rushing to find a solution. /s

iamzimy commented on 2022-06-13 17:20 (UTC)

Has the X11 icon has been fixed? Or I'm the only one who still having that issue?

Wow, Spotify devs finally fixed a half-decade old bug with MPRIS with this latest release! Now seeking actually works from the DE's Media Player control panel. Took them long enough. Now maybe they will fix the broken titlebar in 2025!

@MarsSeed thanks for the reminder and details.

@stonyboy is this a solution that works for everybody? You could add it here:

Please add optdepends=(ffmpeg4.4) as HurricanePootis asked for a month ago, since Spotify Packages file recommends libavcodec58 (ffmpeg-compat-58) and it is provided by ffmpeg4.4 from Arch repo.

Also please remove optdepends=ffmpeg-compat-57 because that is not preferred by Spotify if ffmpeg4.4 is available.

When trying to start version 1: I got a:] GPU process isn't usable. Goodbye.

What worked for me was to then start it like this instead:

spotify --in-process-gpu
