6. Attach the spotify-dump.txt ( $HOME/spotify-dump.txt ) from Advanced troubleshooting 4: Attached
Please let me know if you need additional information.
Solved! Go to Solution.
NOTE: Once the window shows up - the device appears in the "Spotify Connect" list on my phone. I can connect my phone via Connect, the app plays tracks and I control the playback from my phone, even when there is no UI in the window on PC. So the app is in some weird state when some modules are working, but UI in the window is missing/dead.
Same issue with the DEB package (188.8.131.526.gc5f8b819).
spotify --disable-gpu does NOT help to resolve the issue. Talking about GPUs, my laptop has Nvidia GTX 1650 Max-Q and Nvidia Prime enabled (the "on-demand" profile). Display server - X11.
I also have a VNC server running in the background.
Stopping the VNC server works as a workaround.
Same issue here, running Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS and after installing spotify client Version: 1:184.108.40.2063.g4f94bf0d I now have just a black gui. As pointed out I can still control it from some other device.
No VNC installed and nvidia is latest available
Starting with --disable-gpu does NOT help.
Ubuntu 20.04, same here. I have no vnc running, and --disable-gpu does not help.
