Please upvote this topic if you wish to have spotify in the official ArchLinux [community] repository:

This package uses the stable branch of spotify and additional GPG checks for better security. It is properly installed inside /opt/spotify.

gpg --keyserver hkps:// --recv-keys 0DF731E45CE24F27EEEB1450EFDC8610341D9410
sudo pacman -S --needed devtools
sudo pacman -U spotify-stable-*.pkg.tar.gz

@bertptrs This one uses the stable branch, while the spotify package uses the testing branch. It was broken a lot of times and the maintainer refused to secure the package with GPG signatures. Thatswhy I introduced the stable package.

I think they currently have the same version number, as spotify did not gave out any new testing release yet and the previous testing version was working well.

What is the difference between this package and spotify? Looking at the PKGBUILD, I can't really tell, other than that this one is slightly nicer and more correct.

extra-x86_64-build fails for me with output:

==> ERROR: options array contains unknown option '!upx'

Seems to relate to

[UPDATE} FWIW the other package (spotify) is working very well for me so far.

I'm getting a 404 error when downloading downloading a deb.

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading

I was able to confirm the 404 result with that url.

@teohhanhui You are completely right, i totally overlooked it this time. Cannot revert back though now. Thanks for the note, I normally should have done this. My fault.

As fixes and additional features are added to the PKGBUILD that influence the resulting package, the pkgrel should be incremented by 1. When a new version of the software is released, this value must be reset to 1.

Updated PKGBUILD for latest stable release (

BrightLight, PGP verifications are definitely not "outside the [scope of] the typical AUR install procedure."

Try using a better keyserver like hkps://

Checksum for "spotify-stable-" and "spotify-stable-" failed, please fix or maybe disable them since there's a GPG check anyway.

Had to disable all check to succesfully build pkg, beside that, soft is working.

[EDIT 25/02/18 :] Fixed, thank you !

Please disable checksums for spotify-stable--Release.sig and spotify-stable--Release. They are constantly changed on server (timestamps?) and are already verified by gpg.
