My Question or Issue

As observed in this post, there is a workaround to fix the scaling setting for spotify installed using snaps by adding `--force-device-scale-factor=1.5` to the `.desktop` file. There is one problem with this however as whenever the snap is updated it looks like the setting gets removed. Is there any way to fix this?

Sorry about that.

 

Try to copy the desktop file to $HOME/.local/share/applications/ but replace the snapshot revision in the path (for instance 28) with the word current, which is a symlink to the currently active revision.
