Been having the same issue for months that @SeerUK reported in an earlier comment: can start spotify, and play songs, but the UI will lock up randomly during regular use. It is as if I can click the UI elements, but nothing happens (clicking on the play button for a song will not do anything). When it does freeze, the song progress bar will also freeze.

Using the latest version of spotify with all up-to-date dependencies, and no changes made to the installation or configuration of spotify.

Hi All,

I keep receiving the error

Error: Failure while downloading

I have a network connection.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Hi there, I'm also getting the same issue some users had a few months ago. I can open Spotify, but if I start to play a song the whole UI locks up. The music plays, but I can't do anything then. Other things like playerctl also don't work with it once it's frozen. I believe it must be one of the dependencies being used. The same happens for me when using spotify-stable too.

UPDATE: Downgraded from linux to linux-lts, and this resolved the issue for me.

UPDATE 2: Nope, it's still doing it. Intermittently now though.

Same here. Spotify does not "remember" the last track played. UPDATE: Its working again!

Hi @Tipoun, I had spotify and everything works fine. I dont get any problem on "remember-me"

Tipoun commented on 2017-07-11 09:10

I have the same problem since last update, but I think it is a problem in Spotify not related to Arch.

Since the last update, the "remember me" feature does not work any more. I tried a fresh install removing the spotify content in .local, .config and .cache, but I'm still experiencing the same problem. Any one with this issue too?

I get the following error. I've tried every combination of libcurl and libopenssl in the repos. Any ideas?

Hey everyone. Sorry for the slow update here. I've been away for the past week. The package is now up to date!
