For some reason, the snap package 18.104.22.168.g6bd7cc73-35 doesn't work on Ubuntu 18.04. It fails with:
ERROR: ld.so: object 'libgtk3-nocsd.so.0' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded (failed to map segment from shared object): ignored. execl failed: No such file or directory child exited with status 1
Same for 22.214.171.1245.g4d3f03c7-5 (edge).
Same; I was working just fine until an hour ago when I rebooted after doing updates.
I removed and reinstalled, no difference. syslog shows no errors when I try launching spotify; from a terminal (and I didn't try this before it quit working so I don't really know if it should be working) I get this:
execl failed: No such file or directory child exited with status 1
Tried the apt install, I get this:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: spotify-client : Depends: libcurl3 but it is not going to be installed Recommends: libavcodec-ffmpeg56 but it is not installable or libavcodec-ffmpeg-extra56 but it is not installable or libavcodec54 but it is not installable or libavcodec-extra-54 but it is not installable Recommends: libavformat-ffmpeg56 but it is not installable or libavformat54 but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
I am using Ubuntu 18.04 beta. Spotify has worked until yesterday update. The snap application doesn't start. I tried to reinstall, change version etc.: 😞
I have exactly the same problem.
Can confirm, late last night I ran updates and Spotify started working. I didn't tail the logs, it took a very long time to start up but it did come up. Yay!
this thread is listing some bugs reports: https://community.spotify.com/spotify/board/message?board.id=desktop_linux&message.id=15902#M15902
related to the apt package.
The problem is that libcurl.so.3 can not cohabit with libcurl.so.4...
@joon posted a solution in this thread:
Just replace the "stable" to "testing" in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list, the run:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install spotify-client
Hope this works for you too!
