My Question or Issue

 

Spotify crashes itself on launch without even a window popping up.

When I try to launch it through the terminal, it shows the following error:

"internal error, please report: running "spotify" failed: timeout waiting for snap system profiles to get updated".

Hey @Avendo07,

 

Thanks for writing in the Community about this and for providing a screenshot! 

 

Please try:

1. Reinstalling the app.

2. Restarting your device. 

 

Let us know how it went!

I am getting the same issue as well, running Xubuntu on an i3 2530m system with 8 gigs of ram.

I can see the window flash up, but it jsut closes immediately. I have tried reinstalling through the ubuntu package manager, through the apt install method, and the snap method, and none of them work. 
When I try to run spotify through terminal, my exit error is:

[1010/225654.137220:ERROR:buffer_manager.cc(488)] [.DisplayCompositor]GL ERROR :GL_INVALID_OPERATION : glBufferData: <- error from previous GL command
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I don't think that error message in the post just above mine is significant (apart from the segmentation fault message). My Spotify (on Debian 10) is starting up without problems, but I still see this message if I start Spotify from the terminal:

 

$ spotify

[1108/214733.309579:ERROR:buffer_manager.cc(488)] [.DisplayCompositor]GL ERROR :GL_INVALID_OPERATION : glBufferData: <- error from previous GL command

 

If you have a Segmentation fault message, you should probably read this thread:
