You can fix the GPG key issue by using:

For those having trouble with the AUR package being out of date, try this:

  • Download this package's PKGBUILD (with yay, run yay -G spotify).
  • Navigate to the directory containing the PKGBUILD file, and open it in your preferred editor.
  • Find these two lines in the file:
pkgver={version string}
commit={commit hash}
  • Navigate to
  • Locate the file in the list with the latest version number. It should be of the format "spotify-client_{version string}.{commit hash}_amd64.deb".
  • Replace the lines you found earlier with the corresponding values in the file name. Save the file.
  • From the terminal, in the directory of the PKGBUILD file you just edited, run updpkgsums, followed by makepkg -si.
  • Spotify should install properly. If you wish, you can remove the directory the PKGBUILD file was contained in.

The prepare() .deb sha512sum check fails again for pkgver

The reports for the previous versions didn't get an answer for how to fix it. I'm going to just skip the check for now?

Like Sanras, I've also encountered a bug with the window title not being set with the most recent update.

I also had the "firewall" issue. All songs were grayed out and after reinstall, I could not log in. The message was "A firewall may be blocking spotify [...] error code: accesspoint:34" Running spotify with the --show-console option shows that it tries to use the NetworkManager. In my case, NetworkManager was not running, so no package left my PC. Starting NetworkManager solved this issue for me. I'm not sure if it's a corner case, but maybe we should include NetworkManager in the depedencies.

Just noticed that the latest version doesn't change the window title to the playing song. Quite annoying. Is this intended behavior, or a bug?

Edit - Definitely a bug. The title bar somehow changed from the X11 logo to the Spotify one (as its supposed to be), and the song that was playing at the time is displaying as the title. However, it just happened this one time for some reason. The title still doesn't update with new songs playing, so it seems it was just a fluke that the titlebar updated correctly for one of the songs.

I can't believe it. MPRIS actually works now. I thought it would take Spotify at least another decade to fix this, but I'm impressed by how fast they fixed this issue. It only took a couple years!

They've managed to pull blurred album arts on any zoom scale, and added annoying sliding animation when picking a track from a list!

The deb file is working again.

mpris seems ok here: using for song info and play/pause/stop/forward/back controls
