@GLaDER, Spotify's start page is a severe resource hog in the app, because of the animated stuff. For me, the problem disappears when switching to another area (e.g. a playlist).

I am having severe GUI issues when running Spotify. If I start Spotify all applications will start freezing every once in a while (a couple of seconds in between). If I close Spotify, everything works fine.

Running i3wm.

sigbjorn's method worked for me as well. Thanks a lot sigbjorn.
I'm very curious to know how one could go about figuring out how to fix this kind of error. This one seems mind-boggling to me.
Anyway, great job.

So to explain for people who doesn't know what sigbjorn is talking about, download the snapshot and open up PKGBUILD with whatever text editior that you like (I used nano)

Then when it's open find the two sections that sigbjorn points out, change them and save it. Then run makepkg and it shall work.

Good job sigbjorn.

Spotify detects I'm offline even though I have a internet connection. I tried to re open the app but still it says I'm offline.
