I may have found a solution - at least for my particular configuration. I was running on a HIDPI screen with Gnome & Wayland. I had set the Gnome window scaling factor to 2 previously, but now I have the scaling factor set to 0 to let Wayland autoscale and I no longer have issues with the menu.

Thanks for this tip about hitting the 'enter' key! Love having Spotify on Linux but this problem set me back a bit!

Same problem here.

Here are my details.

 

$ apt show spotify-client
Package: spotify-client
Version: 1:1.0.49.125.g72ee7853-111

gnome 3.24
ubuntu gnome 17.04
x server

I was able to enter settings page with keyboard and hitting the 'enter' button instead of clicking with mouse.

I'm using Lubuntu 16.04.2 32 bits on an old HP-Mini 110-3100 and having the same problem.

 

Thank you guys for the tip about the keyboard to access settings on Spotify :)

Same problem and same solution (highlight settings and hit Enter / Return) for me on all recent editions of Linux Mint.

Excellent that also works for me. I have a normal screen and having the same issue.

I have the same issue in Ubuntu 17.10.

 

Keyword workaround works like this:

1. unfold options menu as usual, i.e. with the mouse pointer.

2. select the settings option with up and down keys.

3. press enter.

 

Regards
