Hi, I noticed the build error I mentioned in my previous comment has been fixed, but as a result the -j flag has been removed entirely. Would you consider re-adding -j$(nproc) to the make command?

Without it, it takes excruciatingly long to build the package, even on latest-gen i7 processors.

This fails to compile due to

make: the '-j' option requires a positive integer argument

The MAKEFLAGS variable is set to -j$ (nproc), which seems like a typo. Manually setting it to -j$(nproc) fixes it.

I think you need to turn lto off to get this to compile

How I got it working:

yay -S spotify-qt librespot
systemctl enable librespot.service
systemctl start librespot.service

Sign in to dashboard.spotify.com and create a new app. Set redirecturl to http://localhost:8888

in cmd, type spotify-qt

Enter ID and secret keys created in Spotify dashboard.

Go to Setttings > General.

librespot location: /usr/bin/librespot. I selected Start with app and Always start. Then clicked on Start Client button.

Go to Configurations Tab and enter Username. Select desired quality and left backend as Auto. Save password in keyring and Enable discovery is selected. it will ask for Spotify password once you hit Apply.

Any architecture that supports Qt should work fine, I just set it to x86_64 and kind of forgot about it. I'll make sure to change it for the next release.

It's worth noting that I have had success building this package on the PineBook Pro running Manjaro ARM.

I simply had to add (or change) the 'arch' to include 'aarch64'

@Kraxarn, I don't know what it'd take for you to include that as a supported architecture (e.g. level of support and testing) but I'm sure that there's other PineBook Pro/ Manjaro ARM users would appreciate a usable Spotify client.

It works with any Spotify playback client, but due to the integration with spotifyd, it should probably be an optional dependency, I agree.

Spotifyd should be a dependency I suppose?
