My Question or Issue

 

I've been unable to add local files to Spotify on my desktop (running Ubuntu). I can add the same files on my Android.

 

strace-ing the spotify processes show the following:

Upon toggling "Show local files" in settings

https://controlc.com/beed9b3d

(this seems to indicate that the files are visible as seen by the various /home/user/Music/youtube/ reads)

 

Upon visiting the "local files" playlist (which shows nothing)

https://controlc.com/02dce993

 

Things I have tried that didn't work:

- Removing the cache

- Changing the Local Files directory to some other directory

- Changing the names of the directories/files to simpler terms (in case spotify has issue with Japanese glyphs)
