The package has been flagged out of date again.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:

You can fix the GPG key issue by using:

curl -sS | gpg --import -

Used to have play/pause and skip keyboard shortcut control with spotify but now I dont for some reason. All other fn keys are working properly. Any ideas how to get it working again with Spotify?

Can confirm the issues opening a file browser for local files on I3 with a fully updated system

I cannot update because

I tried to add the GPG key with the link provided by the pinned comment, but it does not work.

Spotify crashes everytime file selector opens like while selecting playlist cover or selecting local audio source on Gnome

Can anyone listen to Joe Rogan's podcast while using this version of spotify?

@D3SOX Yes I know optimal dependencies is a thing and has a purpose I just didn't see how this was one of those cases but given the fact that ffmpeg-compat-57 has to be built from source and that the spotify app can do everything except play local files without it I can see why it was marked optional. I wish the spotify company would compile it as part of the spotify bin but given the fact that the Mac version of Spotify doesn't display desktop notifications of the song playing I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

@LinuxLoverForeve see The program works without those packages. Some folks might not even use this feature and therefore don't need to install them

@D3SOX My bad I didn't see it there but I'm also surprised it's considered optional because IMO the functionality it provides is part of the core app not an add-on. I even downloaded clementine a while back because I wanted to play my local files and didn't think it was possible to do on this install of spotify.

@LinuxLoverForeve It is clearly listed as optional dependency. Always check those when installing packages ^^
