Configuring Spotify to open Maximized

Configuring Spotify to open Maximized

To start with I am using Spotify downloaded from AUR. I am looking for a way to have Spotify open maximized. I have tried playing around with the prefs but have just been guessing. Anyone have any ideas?

Hey there @mmepsychosis


Thanks for reaching out to us about this - we'll be glad to help you out here.

We can't guarantee how the Spotify app would perform if downloaded from third-party sources. We rather suggest you download the app version for Linux from the official Spotify website as it's a trusted source.


You can find the version and installation steps here.


Keep us posted! We'll be happy to lend a hand if you need more help.

Which window manager are you using? You should be able to set special properties on an application/window basis.
For example, in KDE, you right click on window titlebar and go to More Actions -> Special Application settings. I don't know about other wm's, but I suppose there should be similar options in Gnome, XFCE, etc.

You could try the command line args --window --maximize if they work for you you can add them to the Exec line of the spotify .desktop file.
