@Aire-One thank you.

But to both you and anyone else having the same problem I guess the simplest solution is to just rebuild the AUR package so that it picks up the change in libpsl.

Once done then the problem is solved.

@lefterisjp, as I said, my solution for this issue is NOT a good solution. But here is what I did:

I checked the pacman packages cache (you could also use downgrade or manually download from the archives) for an older version of libpsl package.

I grabbed the /var/cache/pacman/pkg/libpsl-0.19.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz package (if I correctly recall) then uncompressed it in my /tmp and manually copied usr/lib/* to /usr/lib.

You will then have to manually manage the copied files when attempting an other upgrade operation. That's not the good solution to follow, but at least, you can easily make Spotify to work again, waiting for a better update.

Warning: completely downgrade the libpsl package (i.e. remove the new version of libpsl and reinstall an older) will broke your arch installation. Many packages need the new version, including pacman. So pacman -Syu will no longer works and you will need to manually reinstall the new version of libpsl with a pacman -U <local-file>.

After upgrading my packages spotify no longer works.

/usr/share/spotify/spotify: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

@Aire-one how did you manage to solve this problem and have both versions of libpsl in your system?

@msudgh Had the same issue, something in my /etc/hosts was interfering with the login process, try clearing the file to log in.

After installing spotify, it doesnt show in the menu. I can run spotify with Alt+F2 --> spotify. But I cannot find it in the Mate menu.

What am I missing here?

After installation and launching, Spotify stuck on loading icon. Also, i reinstalled it. What's the problem?

Aire-One commented on 2018-03-03 16:37

Spotify is broken with the new version of libpsl from testing repo. Spotify need (core/libpsl provide this version) where testing/libpsl update gives

I managed to get both versions on my system but the way I did it is not viable. I think we should have something like for the openssl-1.0.

+1 & thanks for dropping ffmpeg0.10 for local, ffmpeg-compat-54 works just fine for me :)

@windy thanks a lot for sharing this link! I will definitely add this to the spotify-stable package.

Sadly this mirror has no gpg signature, those have to be still pulled via http. Since its a digital signature it will still be okay though.

It would be better if this package would also check the GPG signatures for more security of the users. AWhetter just ignored my suggestions :/
