The other soulseek client available on AUR, nicotine-plus-git, doesn't have the context-menu-freeze problem. It's totally usable, albeit a bit slower and with a clunkier interface.

I'm having a similar probelm to chrisco23 below except my system locks -infrequently - after I right click selected files in search results. I'm using an up to date Arch KDE. The latest file for download on the official site appears to be from 2016

@chrisco23 Hi,I can't reproduce this bad behaviour. And I can't do any sort of bug fixing because no code is available. I can try to suggest some test to do. you can try to:

change graphic session, between xorg and wayland

check for other processes

check for available new versions and notify here (there's no updated release page on the official site)

join the discussion group of official project. Nir is always available

I've been using soulseekqt for years but in the last week or so it consistently locks up my machine within 30-60 seconds of running.

I'm running awesomewm on Arch Linux, 2 monitors if that matters somehow, 1 being a 40" tv.

The lockups are usually so severe that I actually have to cold-boot the machine, although just now I was able to minimize then expand and I saw the window frame with the soulseek logo, but the window was filled with my desktop background. I was able to run a terminal and kill the process, this time.

I had also just uninstalled and reinstalled, latest version. Arch is fully updated.

Any ideas?

@Discoo I don't know if the author updated the links. But if you check the folder id (0vi87eef3ooh7iy) is the same. I will update the package with the tgz source extension as on website.

PS As you can see in PKGBUILD log, the checksum of Appimage is the same of tgz

Hello, the download link in this PKGBUILD ( is not the same Dropbox link as the one posted on the website. Where does this dropbox link come from? Thanks

sorry, what seemed like memory leak was apparently caused by unrelated samba default protocol change which killed proper symlink handling and caused infinite directory recursion. so my previous comment is incorrect.

2018.01.30 version apparentlty leaks memory for me, had to downgrade to 2017.11.21.

I'm confused. How exactly is it used ? This PKGBUILD works just fine.

@robertfoster "Now it supports "minimize to tray" on close button" And now it's gone again!? One of the best features that was added lately...
