Same! Ubuntu 18.04.4 and getting GUI frozen. Spotify keeps playing music and responding to multimedia keys. I can also click where there should be buttons and the interaction works properly. It seems more a render-like problem instead of a full GUI bug.
I reinstalled today from snap with the same results. Works great for a while, but in a few minutes (couldn't say how long it lasts...), I have to close and reopen spotify. Pretty annoying.
before doing this uninstall Spotify then go though these steps in the terminal then once you have completed that go to media players and Spotify should be there run it and login and it should work ok let me know how you get on
Hi The previous instruction seems to be a working solution. I'm running xfce so I do not know why I need gnome-support but installed it anyway. 1. First I removed spotify 2. I could not get the key working so I downloaded the package http://repository.spotify.com/pool/non-free/s/spotify/spotify-client-gnome-support_0.9.17.1.g9b85d43... and installed it with software center. 3. Installed spotify with software center 4. Launched spotify and it seems to load bit longer than usual and felt sticky the first minute but then working and responding OK. Thank You Ali Garlanz
Have you done a system update cause I think it might be updating the Spotify Client and they might be a problem with the new version so I think you should try an install a earlier version of the Spotify Client and try that mine system still works ok but I haven’t updated my system
