I have a strange error while trying to install spotify:

could not extract /opt/spotify/ (Lzma library error: No progress is possible)

If anyone receives this error

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

just run the following command.

gpg --recv-key A87FF9DF48BF1C90

The out of date flag is wrong.

@Dante_Igashu Neither of the two apps work but I just installed spotifiy on another computer and it ,orked just fine, I am thinking my makepkg is doing something strange

@Traxys That's weird. I see there's some stuff gone in the spotify folder and for what you say it happened in two AUR app folders. You didn't answer my previous question, does spotify work? and now, does flutter work? or you are unable to use both apps, given there's some stuff missing. Have you tried reinstalling? if you did and there's still some stuff missing you could try removing the package like this:

sudo pacman -Rns spotify

this will remove the package, its configuration files and its dependencies, then you could try reinstalling and see what happens.

If the app works just fine even when there seems to be some stuff missing or if the problem remains, you could try asking in the "Forums" section, perhaps somebody knows what's happening. I made a quick search and found this:

Doesn't seems to be of any help, but seems to be something similar to your problem, so, you may not be the first with this issue and there might be someone who can help.

Good Luck! :D

@Dante_Igashu I'll output the result of ls /opt/spotify for version 1: and 1:

Apps cef_100_percent.pak cef_extensions.pak devtools_resources.pak icudtl.dat locales snapshot_blob.bin spotify.desktop v8_context_snapshot.bin apt-keys cef_200_percent.pak cef.pak icons natives_blob.bin spotify swiftshader

After: Apps apt-keys cef_100_percent.pak cef_200_percent.pak cef_extensions.pak cef.pak devtools_resources.pak icons icudtl.dat locales swiftshader

As you can see some important files disapeared. I have no binary named spotify in my path.

I could have a problem with some types of /opt packages flutter seems to have the same issue

@Traxys Hello! :D If you are referring to the executable file, I have one in /opt/spotify and a link in /bin and another link in /usr/bin for spotify. Yet I wonder why the question? :O Can you make use of spotify?

Traxys commented on 2019-06-25 10:35

I do not have any binary named spotify installed in /opt/spotify or /usr/bin, am I the only one with this problem ?
