The package has been flagged out of date again. I want to remind, that we package the stable version of spotify, not the testing version. Stable versions can be found under the following link and have not been updated for a long time:

Spotify is currently holding back Debian releases, and snap packages do not offer a secure way to verify. For your own security I will not package the snap app, but you can help notifying Spotify about the issue by voting for:

You can fix the GPG key issue by using:

curl -sS | gpg --import -

@LiterallyJohnny I have the same problem @NicoHood Is there a way to install with the repository that you pinned in a comment?, or simply it won't work until the further notice?

@markoff I think everyone gets errors...

Is there any way to fix this ? Ive checked a few answers in the forums and Im not able to install the deb packages (using debtap) in the first place

I can't use local files with this

I think we're missing a dependency. I get a segfault when I hit my username and hit the change picture circle.

Problem persists in the spotify-snap package.

In the spotify snap, a file chooser pops up, but the font is all rectangles.

@NicoHood: Thanks. I hope so, too. I went ahead and created spotify-snap. Still not particularly happy about repackaging a snap. I will orphan it once there is a better solution

I've pinned the spotify post by Creimer. Please upvote this post, so spotify will see it. With our last post we made 3k likes until spotify noticed the post and closed it (the introduced snap after that). Now we need to get spotify in updating the package more frequently or providing us with some software tarballs that are signed properly.

@CReimer: If you want to maintain a spotify-snap package that'd be cool for me. Thats a lot for your Post on the spotify forum. I hope they will respond.

Anybody else unable to install Spotify with the yay AUR helper? I keep getting this error below:

FWIW, the podcast doesn't work for me either.

@Pryka, thanks for replying. That is weird, it doesn't on mine. I am getting the following message though, could be due to this:

/opt/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /opt/spotify/spotify)

Could it be due to that?

They are working fine on my machine(They even have video feed!)

looks like they won't be releasing debian packages. This package is very old now. Lets just use snap as a source.
