Installing Spotify for the first time

This is how the install is failing

What should I do ?

take a look at the pinned comment at

-> curl -sS | gpg --import -

that should solve your issue.


Just one last question before I do that step.
Can importing that key compromise security in any way ?

You’re importing a public key into your user’s keyring, so no.

If this doesn’t make sense then have a read of the Arch wiki page about the AUR:


Thanks guys. Enjoying music on Spotify as I type.

Haha, now @jonathon was quicker then me (and he’s more knowledgeable anyways… :wink: ).

But you asked before acting because you were unsure - that’s a good thing! Especially when it comes to the AUR.



As someone who never used Spotify, I’m wondering… Is there any music on Spotify that is not available on YouTube?

Google collect far more personal data about users than you might realize. The company records every search you perform and every YouTube video you watch.

Hehe, not when I use it :rofl:

I use youtube-dl through an invidious mirror, with Tor, when I want to be sneaky.

Is there any music on Spotify that is not available on vinyl…all right, all right :zipper_mouth_face: :sweat_smile:

Probably yes, since a lot of music, unfortunately, is not available on vinyl. :frowning:

No worries!
Rest of the music is available for playing live yourself :joy:

Alternative question - how much music is available on vinyl that is NOT on Spotify? I know I have a few albums…


following this:

will make automatic getting keys from inside yay working…

I have used Spotify for a long time. And sometimes to enjoy Spotify music on the go anywhere and anytime, I use the tool DRmare Spotify Converter to help me. After then, I can save Spotify songs as local files and move them to other devices for using as I like.
