My Question or Issue
I have notices that I am able to use spotify only once per user session and when I close it once, it just won't start again without a full l restart. Running it from the terminal gives the following error. Even the "--disable-gpu" cli option didn't help. Any ideas on how to fix this?

one year and 4 months and stil no official fix??
Just tried on a freshly installed Bunsen Labs distro (formerly Crunchbang based on Debian).
Spotify doesn't care about linux... The bug still unsolved.
The Debian package (from https://www.spotify.com/us/download/linux/) actually seems to work perfectly for Ubuntu, the issue is probably related to the Snap package. Snap seems to have a long lasting relationship with graphics issues.
