Thanks Skyyyz,
I am indeed using the latest available Spotify version for Linux Mint Xfce
vers. 18.3. (Without the possibility to switch off HW acceleration). This
combination reboots my laptop every few minutes and is of course useless to
me.
I also tried to install an older Spotify version on my Mint 18.3. However
this older version does not startup.
The only reliable option for me is to use an older version of the Mint OS,
version 17.3 together with an older Spotify version with HW acceleration
switched off.
So I made my laptop dual boot between Mint 17.3 and Mint 18.3.
If I want to use spotify I boot in Mint 17.3.

It's a pain but I do not want to buy a new laptop only for the possibility
to run Spotify on mint 18.3 ...

Thanks and regards,
Nicolas
