HiDPi support for flatpak version of spotify

Hi!

 

I'm using the flatpak version of spotify on my linux machine (Fedora 30).

I noticed that the scale-factor for the GUI doesn't work anymore.

 

If I give:

$ /usr/bin/flatpak run --branch=stable --arch=x86_64 --command=spotify --file-forwarding --force-device-scale-factor=1.5 com.spotify.Client @@u %U @@

I get

 

 

error: Unknown option --force-device-scale-factor=1.5

 

 

If I remove that option, spotify is launched correctly.

 

Is that option removed in the latest versions of Spotify (I use ver 1.1.10.546.ge08ef575)?

 

Is there a way to have a make spotify hidpi-friendly again in linux...?

Thank you!

The Arch Linux wiki has a lot of good info on using HiDPI displays with linux (I'm using Debian, but most of the Arch info works for other distributions). For Spotify they suggest simply using the Ctrl++ and Ctrl+- key combinations in Spotify (using Ctrl+0 returns to defaults).

 

This should get saved to your user prefs file (but perhaps it's a different file with flatpak):

 

$ grep zoom ~/.config/spotify/Users/*/prefs

app.browser.zoom-level=50
