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.

I noticed the same in gdb.

Seems like the issue is somewhere where spotify uses curl for its https communication.

Installing the flathub package works (not a fan of snap, cause of being distro-centric).

I solved the problem installing the following package:

sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module

The package was already installed for me, but a

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libcanberra-gtk-module

(temporally?) fixed the problem

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.

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[26661] general protection fault ip:7fb096ed96b1 sp:7fb02bffc888 error:0 in libcurl-gnutls.so.4.5.0[7fb096eae000+60000]

Same here. Pretty annoying. Ubuntu 19.04, Spotify version 1.1.5.153.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.

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).

Same problem for me after upgrading my Ubuntu this morning.

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 🙂

Googled and took a risk on a mirror. 

If you're interested on risking the mirror, here's the URL:

http://mirror.cs.uchicago.edu/spotify/pool/non-free/s/spotify-client/spotify-client_1.0.98.78.gb45d2...

 

To downgrade, simply install it with dpkg and hold it so it doesn't get updated:

sudo dpkg -i spotify-client_1.0.98.78.gb45d2a6b-10_amd64.deb
sudo apt-mark hold spotify-client

 

Otherwise, use snap for now and deal with the slowness.

Switching to the snap package solved the problem for me.

 

snap install spotify

I have the same problem with the snap package too. Ubuntu 19.04, amd64.

The libgnutls30_3.6.8-2_i386.deb and libcurl3-gnutls_7.64.0-4_amd64.deb packages seem no longer available, so I ended up installing the following packages on Ubuntu 19.0 to make it work:

 

http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/c/curl/libcurl3-gnutls_7.65.3-1ubuntu3_amd64.deb
http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gnutls28/libgnutls30_3.6.9-5_i386.deb
http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gnutls28/libgnutls30_3.6.9-5_amd64.deb
http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libt/libtasn1-6/libtasn1-6_4.14-3_amd64.deb
http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/libt/libtasn1-6/libtasn1-6_4.14-3_i386.deb

Except snap is _not_ (yet) the default installer on Ubuntu, so anyone wanting to stick with apt will use the deb package.

Yeah, TBH, I don't like snap packages at all. If there's deb avaialable I'll always go and choose it over anything else.
