For some reason those .deb packages can be downloaded only with wget because the server closes connection in the middle of dowload very often.

Can't paste a working wget coomand here for some reason it gets shortened.

Same issue.

The AUR package is outdated, not working for me anymore.

Only option from snap.

The drag magic is working.

Same issue on Kubuntu 20.04. I've tried snap and apt/deb. The application is very unresponsive and almost unusable. I can select a playlist and let it run for an hour or so until it crashes. Trying to switch songs/playlist will freeze the app. Frustrating as a long-time premium user who works on linux all day.

I got very tired uninstalling and installing the app ... there has not been a working solution since february. I still do my work on Ubuntustudio but I bough a mac book pro aside just to play spotify.
