@plebian, that problem where the account link does not work has existed for many versions. Also on GNOME. Thanks for the tip about the arrow keys.

plebian commented on 2017-01-25 13:28

Can't seem to click the link to account settings, don't know if more people have this problem otherwise I'm opening a ticket. On Gnome

edit: using the arrow keys with enter works as a workaround

I ran spotify as root. Like you said, everything works fine.

I believe you're right about dbus; I get the following message when running as root:

(spotify:2173): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_dbus_connection_send_message: assertion 'G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION (connection)' failed

I haven't been able to find any information about this error, but I'll keep searching.

Also, I have a similar situation with my laptop as well. I have a manjaro install and I get the same libssl errors. Running as normal user works fine.
I'll let you know if I find anything.

I experience the same problem. I don't think it has something to do with libssl.
When running Spotify as root everything works just fine. It prints the same messages about libssl etc, so i don't think this is the problem.

I have another Arch Linux installation on my notebook. The strange thing is: Everything works normal on my notebook. Spotify runs smoothly executed as a normal user and is btw also printing the messages you mentioned.
I couldn't find out what is making the difference here. Both systems are nearly identical and up-to-date.

I noticed that when running it as root Spotify is not connecting to dbus for some reason. Could that make the difference maybe?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

I noticed that these data files were being installed with execute permissions:

I'm having some issues with spotify and openssl.

When I launch spotify, the window opens and I can log in. Once I hit play on a song, I get sound, the application freezes and I can't click anything (pause, change songs, etc.)

Errors from the terminal:

/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/libssl.so.1.0.0: no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)
/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)
/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/libcurl.so.3: no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)
/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/libssl.so.1.0.0: no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)
/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)
/usr/share/spotify/spotify: /usr/lib/libcurl.so.3: no version information available (required by /usr/share/spotify/spotify)
[0119/213400:ERROR:main_delegate.cc(752)] Could not load cef_extensions.pak

I've tried using an older version of spotify ( using git and makepkg as suggested by @chso, but I end up with the same errors.
Before re-installing, I made sure to remove stuff like ~/.cache/spotify and ~/.config/spotify and the like.

I don't know much about openssl aside from that it has to do with cryptography. My gut tells me I shouldn't mess around with it.

Version information:
pacman -Q spotify

pacman -Q openssl
openssl 1.0.2.j-1

If it matters, "which openssl" returns the path to my anaconda2 (python distribution) installation:

Also, I did pacman -Syy and -Syu before installing so my system is up to date.

If anybody knows what the issue could be, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I did @PipeNinja's change but for both x86_64 and i686 and uploaded that modified pkgbuild here: https://github.com/spookykidmm/spookykidmm-pkgbuilds/tree/master/spotify
