Has anyone tried this with the gnome support mentioned by gadget3000?
nvm, I thought it added GTK support, but it it doesn't seem to do that...

Edit: Does anyone know what causes this problem?:

In spotify.desktop, you need the category AudioVideo, in order for e.g. KDE to put this under the "Multimedia" tab.

Found new missing dependency, "Unable to load the real plugin libavutil.so.49: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Version 50 is installed on my computer, not 49. Seems this is not dramatical, as spotify still runs just fine.

And when I try to go to preferences I get a segmentation fault, anyone else can confirm this?

New version available which is also usable by the unlimited subscription.

I'm adding gnome support but it requires a higher version of gconf than the official binaries or in the AUR. Feel free to try it with gnome support once I get it up and let me know how it goes. You need to have the environment variable SPOTIFYGNOMESUPPORT set.

I'm a bit new to making PKGBUILDs so I appreciate everyone's tips so far. For now I have added @Eothred's changes and added him as a contributor so that he can email me any amendments to get them to you all faster.

I just tried my suggested version on my 32bit office computer. Clearly it should state "arch=('x86_64' 'i686')", and not i386 :) Otherwise it seems to work fine, at least on my build...

Used Eothred's PGKBUILD to install on 64bit, no problems. Thanks!

This PKGBUILD appears to be a quick'n dirty hack. Merely unpacking the deb archive to / is not enough. As Eothred mentioned, you should move the license file. I'm sure there are other non-Arch stuff that the deb package does. After unpacking the deb in $srcdir, move the necessary files to their respective places in $pkgdir.
