The Linux desktop client is one of the biggest reasons why I use Spotify and have a premium subscription.

 

Thanks for supporting us! :-)

I hope someday we will get back "hide to tray when minimized" option. I am working on Kubuntu and there's no way for KDE to minimize Spotify to tray.

 

Thanks for the update, keep up the good work! :)

Thanks for supporting us!! I wouldn't be using Spotify, if it were not be a linux version available. I can't stand with widows or Mac...

Wanted to say my thanks too for the Linux client! Been using it since its release. Also keeps me from getting lured by other streaming services ;)

Recently libcurl3, used by the spotify-client, was replaced with libcurl4 which is incompatible. It is impossible to upgrade to libcurl4 without removing spotify client.

 

The change in libcurl is described in the changelog below; is there  any plan to rebuild the spotify-client with libcurl4 soon, so that one can upgrade all the other packages held back because they need libcurl4?

 

curl (7.60.0-2) unstable; urgency=medium

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * Build-depend on libssl-dev instead of libssl1.0-dev.
  * Rename libcurl3 to libcurl4, because libcurl exposes an SSL_CTX via
    CURLOPT_SSL_CTX_FUNCTION, and this object changes incompatibly between
    openssl 1.0 and openssl 1.1.
  * debian/patches/03_keep_symbols_compat.patch: drop, since we are no longer
    claiming compatibility.
  * debian/patches/90_gnutls.patch: Retain symbol versioning compatibility for
    non-OpenSSL builds.  Closes: #858398.
  * Adjust libssl1.1 vs libssl1.0 Suggests/Conflicts; thanks, Adrian Bunk

Clean installed Ubuntu 18.04LTS and reinstalled from the Spotify repo. Spotify is having issues with sound control and device discovery.

Will try again with snap version and then again with Fedora or back to 17.10.

FWIW Spotify Linux client is the pick of the bunch.

Agreed, but the problem is for 32-bit linux only (i.e. i386 architecture) there is no updated version of the 32 bit linux client built with the new libcurl4. This means libcurl4 can't be installed without removing spotify-client.

 

Lack of libcurl4 is blocking about 300 packages so far from getting upgraded.
