I'd like to remind everyone using this package that jetfir3's SpotX-Bash now exists. I personally moved to using SpotX since it automatically patches out the upgrade button, sponsored banner, and ad banners, as well as blocks ads.

To stop the ads, change the desktop command to the following: env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/ spotify %U note: do not use --uri %u

Unfortunately, the ads still appear on Spotify 1.4.716.gc5f8b819 :(

The exec line in the desktop file should be Exec=env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ spotify --uri=%U

(added --uri= before %U)

This way it can open external spotify links.

Apologies for the "advertisement", but I have created a simple solution for getting rid of the ad banner. The removal persists via a hook with new installations of spotify. You can find it here. Certainly not my idea, and not taking credit for it (as mentioned there), but hope it helps.

@coxackie awh my bad I didn't know that, thank you so much for the information/explanation.

@kr0wx1 xyzzy has already answered exactly the same thing below. This is a git package, and does not need to be updated as it builds from git. Just rebuild it, and install. Alternatively, if you are using paru or yay, they should pick up that there is a newer commit.

hey, thanks for maintaining this package. are you going to update it?? there is a new commit that fixes the issues with the latest spotify updates.

@Sanras: I don't think you're supposed to do that with VCS packages. FWIW, paru seems to notice the changes and rebuild automatically.
