As desired by the recent request I will change this PKGBUILD to the spotify stable branch and add PGP signature verification. The epoch will increase, as this package is currently at a higher version number. The segfaults are possibly fixed then.

If desired, someone can create a copy of this package and name it spotify-dev, so you are still able to use the bleeding edge spotify package.

Why is the segmentation fault error not being fixed? Is it only affecting a small number of users?

Mine would only load a black window unless I installed appmenu-gtk-module and libcurl-gnutls

Please stick to stable releases from here on out or this will have to be renamed to spotify-devel.

The spotify-stable package was just deleted, so you may want to add its maintainer, NicoHood, as a co-maintainer.

Replacing ffmpeg-compat-54 with ffmpeg-compat-57 fixed the segfaults for me.

Can confirm that Spotify crashes on boot. Same errors as @Grunzwanzling.

Please change the optional dependency ffmpeg-compat-54 to ffmpeg-compat-57.

When I try to start spotify, the following thing happens:

/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/ no v equired by /usr/share/spotify/spotify) /usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/ no v equired by /usr/share/spotify/spotify) /proc/self/exe: /usr/lib/ no version infor proc/self/exe) /usr/bin/spotify: line 2: 16915 Segmentation fault (core dumped) /usr/share/spotify/spotify "$@"

Can someone help me?

I manually built with version 1.0.98 and it fixed a bunch of issues with fetching playlists and also updated the UI to match the other non-Linux versions.
