Spotify 1:1-1.42.622-1 crashes in terminal

Made a fresh install xfce 20.1.1 and installed spotify client in LTS, stable 5.8, testing and unstable.
I was able to launch spotify with the launcher but not in a terminal. In testing and unstable the launcher crashes also spotify command in terminal. libcurl-gnutls 7.72.0-2 (Required By: spotify) is installed.



spotify: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by spotify)
/opt/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /opt/spotify/spotify)
/opt/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /opt/spotify/spotify)
/proc/self/exe: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /proc/self/exe)
[1003/] GPU process isn’t usable. Goodbye.
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

here was something Spotify version information

Thanks for your comment however this no solution sadly. There’s a thread on arch.
So the problem is there. On my main system i have the messages too but spotify starts.
In virtualbox with stable, testing, unstable images not with the same spotify messages in a terminal.
Hoping a good solution will come …

Spotify 1:1-1.42.622-2 released 181020. I tested in stable, testing, unstable
After importing new public key spotify started.
Additional information AUR (en) - spotify

curl -sS | gpg --import -

Hey @stormschip,

Sorry I’m a bit of a newb here. I tried running the curl command trying to update to Spotify Spotify 1:1-1.42.622-2 and keep getting build failed error below:

spotify- ... FAILED (invalid public key 2EBF997C15BDA244B6EBF5D84773BD5E130D1D45)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!
error downloading sources: spotify

Am I missing a step somewhere? Thanks.

I had the same issue when trying to build spotify from the AUR.

I found this solution in the comments section on the spotify package on the aur website:

  1. curl -sS | gpg --import
  2. rm -rf /var/tmp/pamac-build-${USER}/spotify/

Step 2 might be enough, but since I did Step 1 first, I don’t know :man_shrugging:


Don’t know what you’re missing. Today i did a fresh install 20.1.2 xfce and spotify installed as well.

curl -sS | gpg --import -

gpg: key D1742AD60D811D58: public key “Spotify Public Repository Signing Key” imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: imported: 1
