Operating System Ubuntu 19.04
My Question or Issue
Spotify is crashing with the latest update (1.1.5); rolling back to 1.0.98 solved the issue.
The issue seems to be with curl and gnutls, though I don't want to post logs because they're quite revealing I believe.
Can confirm on Spotify version 22.214.171.124 and ubuntu 19.04. Client won't start on multiple machines.
Confirmed, Ubuntu 19.04
I have the same problem on both my devices:
Notebook with Ubuntu 19.04 (KDE)
and PC with Ubuntu 19.04 (Gnome)
Thread 26 "Curl Thread" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
Switching to the snap package solved the problem for me.
snap install spotify
I'm encountering the same bug on a Laptop with Ubuntu 19.04
@yuusou: could you tell me how to roll back to the previous version. Couldn't find the old package in my /var/cache/apt/archives folder neither online.
Since the snap package doesn't scale properly on my 4k screen, I have to rely on the debian package.
Thanks for your help 🙂
same segmentation fault on 2 ubuntu 19.04 machines. have not checked on 18.04
Same problem for me after upgrading my Ubuntu this morning.
Here's another "same" comment
Yep. Segfaults in 19.04 after update yesterday.
That being said, does anyone have the .deb for the previous version? The APT repo seems to have been purged for previous versions (thanks, Spotify).
Googled and took a risk on a mirror.
If you're interested on risking the mirror, here's the URL:
To downgrade, simply install it with dpkg and hold it so it doesn't get updated:
sudo dpkg -i spotify-client_126.96.36.199.gb45d2a6b-10_amd64.deb sudo apt-mark hold spotify-client
Otherwise, use snap for now and deal with the slowness.
Same here. Pretty annoying. Ubuntu 19.04, Spotify version 188.8.131.52.gf614956d, Copyright (c) 2019, Spotify Ltd.
I thought I would use the web player as an alternative, but I have to enable some DRM stuff before it will play any music. Even more annoying.
The funny thing is, starting the web player in a (chrome) browser has now helped me twice starting the desktop client succesfully afterwards?
And a bit more information about the segfault:
Curl Thread general protection fault ip:7fb096ed96b1 sp:7fb02bffc888 error:0 in libcurl-gnutls.so.4.5.0[7fb096eae000+60000]
I solved the problem installing the following package:
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module
That doesn't work, for me. And on a sidenote: I managed to segfault Spotify after logging in to the web player, so that turned out to be a red herring as well.
When debugging with gdb, I get this:
Thread 27 "Curl Thread" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault. [Switching to Thread 0x7fff6f7fe700 (LWP 30735)] 0x00007ffff7e6fda7 in ?? () from /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl-gnutls.so.4
Installing the flathub package works (not a fan of snap, cause of being distro-centric).
