I run native Linux client 64-bit. In the latest version I can't search for anything, because it crashes with 'segmentation fault' as soon as I type anything in the search field. Therefore I repackaged an older version, removed the files that conflicts with the newer version and renamed it spotify-legacy, so that I can have both installed. The older version can't play local files, therefore I can't have them shown in that version, because it stops when it come to a local file. So I want to have different .config for them, instead of change in preferences everytime I need to switch which version to use. There is nothing in preferences about using a different .config (only about cache).
Is it possible to start Spotify with a command that tells it to use a different config folder?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Cache is ~/.cache/spotify and config is ~/.config/spotify.
Inspired by how I start two instances of dropbox I just tried this:
And it works!!! 😄 Now it puts both .cache and .config in ~/.config/spotify-legacy.
