 Do you have any plans to update spotify to GTK3 or at least provide better HiDPI support ?

Hey @marios199546, welcome to the Community!

 

We have no info on that, but hopefully we can have better support this platform in the future.

 

If you need anything else, just let us know.

Thanks for the reply. Hope to see better Linux support soon.

You can use the --force-device-scale-factor command line option to get it to scale to your DPI. For example:

 

--force-device-scale-factor=1.25

 

is 125% scaling.

 

Recent Qt versions can do this automatically and take the display's DPI into account, but it seems Spotify still uses an older Qt version.

Hey @RealNC, thanks for your input!

 

We hope these steps are of help to @marios199546. If you'd like, you can also visit our Spotify for Developers page. You might find useful insight on the subject over there.

 

Have an awesome week 🙂

GTK3 would also be appreciated for its Wayland support.

Actually, Spotify uses GTK2. I agree with the OP that it should be ported to GTK3. That would bring native wayland support.

At this point it is probably considerable to directly port it to GTK4, since it is suposed to be released H1 next year. ^^

Yup, GTK4 is about to be released. New issue!

GTK4 has been released.
GTK2 is no longer going to be supported beyond one more point release.
