Linux: Spotify crashes after login

Could you please fix this.

https://forum.manjaro.org/t/spotify-crashes-after-login/14246

> it crashes when I try to log me.

Just experienced exactly that same issue, running openSUSE Linux 42.2 and
spotify-client_1.0.45.186.g3b5036d6-95_amd64.deb


This workaround helped:
> Install spotify-legacy (0.9.x) first, log in then install spotify (1.x).

Using: spotify-client-0.9.17_0.9.17.8.gd06432d.31-1_amd64.deb

Using libgcrypt11 from here:
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/awissu/openSUSE_Leap_42.2/x86_64/libgcrypt11-1.5.4-2...


Should be easily reproduceable with any openSUSE 42.2 system.

It just cost me over 2 hours to figure that out.
Annoying!

Very likely the same crash that is mentioned in this thread.

If it's allowed, I could post the 1.0.44.100 deb file. This could help others, because the old version is not available in the repository. May I?

The problem in 1.0.77 is different from the one in 1.0.44 which is what this thread was about.

 

It has been reported here:

 

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Linux/1-0-77-core-dumps/m-p/4463033/highlight/true#M16352

 

Possibly fixed in 1.0.79.
