I have a Spotify Unlimited account and I am trying to use the native Linux version of the application (v0.4.9.302.g604b4fb3). When I play radio, everything is fine. Also, when I have my Play Queue filled up by the Radio playing and I change tracks, it works fine.

However, when I try to search for a song and then play it - it crashes. Also, when I find a song and then add it to the play queue (alongside the radio tracks) it also crashed when it reaches that song.

When I run it from terminal and crash it, this is the output:

I last used this version of the application a few months ago (max 2) and it worked properly. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with all updates installed to date. Has anyone had a similar issue?

EDIT: When I load an album from the main page (one of the "Latest" albums) it seems to play ok.

If upgrade a possibility, Spotify is currently up to version 0.6.2.301.

You could also try uninstall and reinstall of Spotify from scratch.

The problem can also be a conflict with another running application, so try to close as many as possible.
