Spotify Snap randomly stopped working

Been running the latest snap on Manjaro and it just randomly stopped working. Seems like other people are encotuning the same issue, see this thread here:

Tried everything already, nothing helped....

For anything encountering this issue, rebuild the latest AUR if you're on Arch Linux with the following steps

cd Downloads

Git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/spotify.git

 

cd spotify

makepkg -sri

curl -sS https://download.spotify.com/debian/pubkey.gpg| gpg --import

I think the best solution would be to have the Snapd team involved, since it's happening, so far, to users of Arch-based Linux distro. Attempts were made by changing versions of glibc, but no results.

More technical details were documented here:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1888419

Help from the Spotify developers who maintains the Linux snap will be very welcome too, in order to debug this issue further.

There are two another temporary solutions:
1. run in terminal:

snap revert spotify

 

2. or switching to flatpak build:

tomasz1486,

Is spotify older versions running correctly on your Arch-based distro? Would you share its version with us?

For what version is "snap revert" downgrading Spotify to?

 

I also tried the Spotify through Flatpak and it's working fine:

 

Spotify version 1.1.26.501.gbe11e53b, Copyright (c) 2020, Spotify Ltd

 

But snap is broken.



Thanks

It's best if yoh switch to the flat pack. AUR version is seriously outdated. I will also do the upgrade to the flatback,even though I wish Spotify would at least try to maintain the OFFICIAL snap version... 

 

Eben though they say it's not official ffs

I use newest Manjaro KDE (stable branch)

Output from my terminal:
snap revert spotify

spotify reverted to 1.1.10.546.ge08ef575-19

Yes, reverted version seems working fine.

Again, I would not recommend going back to 1.10 simply because its really old.
