Cursor issues on snap client


Cursor issues on snap client

Casual Listener

I'm running Solus (Budgie DE) with DPI scaling set to 2.0. My cursor theme is breeze-cursor.


In the Spotify snap client, when I move my mouse into to the application window, the cursor theme is different than the system one, and the scaling is wrong.


Is there any workaround? It looks like from this bug report comment that they suggest the application packagers fix this.


NB: I already modified the snapd .desktop file to add the --force-device-scale-factor switch as suggested here. The UI is scaled appropriately, but the cursor is not (and also the theme doesn't match the system).

Too bad, I am looking at Spotify to replace Google Play Music, but the Linux desktop support is much better on the other side, I must say. There's an electron app (gpmdp) that has worked flawlessly for me. Snap evidently has some issues and I can't use the deb package on my distro.
