@rabbitranger @sohakes @sepf @SeerUK

Having the same issue as you guys. It will sporadically seem to start working, but it's upon hitting a button on another song and such that will break it once again.

I haven't found a way to coax it into working properly again yet even when restarting the application and whatnot.

What DE and such are you guys using?

Could 'we workaround the following issue: /usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)

@sohakes @sepf @SeerUK Just randomly started experiencing the same issue. UI locks up when changing songs, takes about 30 seconds to respond.

just installed the package, invoking the app from command line gives "/usr/share/spotify/spotify: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Maybe a dependency is missing?

You have to change the PKDBUILD to link to the new versions!
Change the following when editing the PKGBUILD:

That's it
