My Question or Issue

On the Linux desktop app there's green graphical glitch messing everything up. It only shows after I switch from a different program window and it disappears when I switch to maximized or windowed view. I'm using this on Ubuntu Linux.

Do you have AMD graphics? I beleive this is related to some known issues with electron/chromium.
A workaround is passing the --disable-gpu flag on the command line

spotify --disable-gpu

Would I need to launch it like that every time?

If you're on Linux it's easy to modify Spotify to launch with that command. My desktop file is in

/usr/share/applications/spotify.desktop

Just change the Exec flag to include the --disable-gpu parameter until this is fixed properly.

Thanks but that won't be necessary as I have fixed the issue by changing the launch options for the program to be replaced it with the new command.
