I just build this on a freshly installed system with 5.1 Kernel. The complete GUI interface of spotify was lagging to a point that it was unusable. In system monitor were 4 spotify processes running. When I started /opt/spotify/spotify from the terminal I got an error mentioning the terms sandbox and GPU. It is to be noted that my system indeed has 2 GPUs, a RX550 for the host and a RX570 for guest VMs, however I did not yet set up vfio and both GPUs were accessible to the host and drivers were loaded. So I followed the vfio procedure to load the vfio stub driver on boot for the RX570. Now there are only 3 spotify processes running. I still get the error mentioning sandbox and gpu again. Spotify works well now though. Should I report that upstream or is this specific to the build process?

@beiranvand.karim the package is not out of date, as it uses the stable branch, not the testing version.

@jecogeo I am not so in systemd yet but I believe it´s a user systemd, try to execute systemctl --user status dirmngr, it at least found a dead process for me.

@thilk0 I've tried to follow your steps, but it seems i don't have any dirmngr service at all. systemctl --restart drmngr returns: Failed to restart dirmngr.service: Unit dirmngr.service not found.

BTW, I'm frequently falling on GPG and checksum issues....

Importing the key fails due to missing configuration. I needed to

  1. create the file /root/.gnupg/dirmngr with content
  1. Restart dirmngr
  2. Import the key, or just installing the package

Had the same problem:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg... spotify- ... FAILED (unknown public key A87FF9DF48BF1C90) ==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

Solved it by importing the key into the keyring:

gpg --recv-key 931FF8E79F0876134EDDBDCCA87FF9DF48BF1C90

And got the key from Spotify's website:

pacaur has been discontinued by it's author and is no longer supported. Please don't keep using it. If you need something similar. See yay.
