Forward and back keyboard shortcuts no longer working

Forward and back keyboard shortcuts no longer working

BlackEco

Hello,

It's probably a duplicate of Forward and back keyboard shortcut feature no longer working on Mac, but I cannot longer use Ctrl + Left Arrow and Ctrl + Right Arrow to change tracks on Linux.

 

The regression seems to have appeared on version 1.1.67.586.gbb5ef64e since I get it working by reverting to version 1.1.55.498.gf9a83c60

OS: Ubuntu, Spotify installed with snap.

Still an issue on version 1.1.68.632.g2b11de83 (both on Flatpak in Fedora and on Ubuntu)

Can't remember with which version these shortcuts stopped working but would really appreciate if ctrl-left and ctrl-right for skipping songs, as well as ctrl-up and ctrl-down to increase or decrease volume while spotify window is selected, could be fixed on linux.

Running pop_os 21.04, spotify flatpak version 1.1.72.439.gc253025e

ctrl+{right,left,up,down} are broken for me in spotify version 1.1.72.439.gc253025e, running on Debian.

Issue still present for me on Arch

Still an issue for me on Kubuntu 18.04. Would really love if this got some attention as it's a huge degradation in QoL (and I/we pay for the service).

If you happen to use kde plasma here's a custom shortcuts file that you can import to bring back this functionality.

Ctrl+F for Find/Search has stopped working since 1.1.55.498.gf9a83c60 on flatpak. Please bring it back spotify. it's a must-have.

Still broken in: 1:1.1.72.439.gc253025e

You can download an older version here: https://mint.pkgs.org/19.3/mint-import-amd64/spotify-client_1.1.10.546.ge08ef575-19_amd64.deb.html

Still broken in flatpak 1.1.72.439.gc253025e version, on fedora KDE 34, volumen, ctrl+up/down doesn't work.

Still on version: 1:1.1.72.439.gc253025e

Running: `spotify --log-file=./spot.log` while tailing the log shows that ctrl+<arrow keys> does not register with the spotify-client. 

ctrl+r/s shows activity in the log.

It's ridiculous that this is still a problem.

 

Prev, Next, Volume Up/Down with Ctrl keys don't work at all for over a year.

After last update (1.1.84.716.gc5f8b819) Prev, Next, Volume Up/Down with Ctrl keys still don't work… This is f***g joke! 😕
