Problems - mouse and local music

Problems - mouse and local music


Ubuntu 17.10 here. I installed Spotify 1.0.70 (snap). Everything works as expected except: a) clicking on local files button under  preferences is ineffective (you can’t choose local files) b) clicking on drop down windows (the ones to choose how you want the albums or artists to be sorted - by name or recently added) will not work.

thank you

Ok. This does not actually sound like a file picker problem.


It is probably this bug:


Yes. I have to use the keyboard to access drop down menus and Spotify settings.


re: Choosing Local Files.....


Snaps restrict access to files external to the Snap.  A possible workaround (found here) is to launch the snap with the --classic or --devmode options.
