My Question or Issue
The app should request a dark theme so that server side decorations are not light when the GNOME is configured with its default Adwaita theme (or any other light theme). The combination of a light titlebar with Spotify dark contents is very unaesthetic and there have been a number of complaints regarding this for years.
Check https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/issues/99, it's just setting a GTK property.
Haha, big expectations here. They can't be bothered to fix the Spotify app to not segfault when adding a local source, or have working album covers with MPRIS, so I can't see them adding GTK property support anytime soon.
**bleep** they really want me to cancel
What DE and MPRIS control widget are you using?
Notifications are not the same thing as MPRIS.
Notifications and MPRIS are 2 completely different and separate DBus interfaces. The DE/system owns and operates the notification interface (there is generally only one notification interface) and applications own and operate their own separate MPRIS interfaces (there are as many as there are players).
Basically from a server client prescriptive the notification interface is a server and applications are clients. With MPRIS on the other hand, applications are servers and MPRIS control widgets are clients.
You'll need to do a string replace to fix the url. Replace `open.spotify.com` with `i.scdn.co`.
As far as setting the title bar to a dark theme variant goes, this is one of the bugs/papercuts that the unofficial flatpak works around.
I actually wrote the script that fixes this issue in the flatpak wrapper.
