My Question or Issue

Sometimes Spotify works fine, however, i need to launch it twice. The first instance will stay mostly black, the second will work as expected. Any idea how i can fix this? 

Some other times it doesnt work at all and will crash instantly. 

--disable-gpu didnt do the trick.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

edit: not using the snap version since it causes problems with vpn clients

Hey there @hltespotify,

 

Thanks for reaching out! 

 

We'd advise you to:

 

1. Click on Remove All Devices here.

2. Perform a reinstall.

3. Restart your device. 

 

If this doesn't do the trick, could you confirm if this happens on another ddevice as well?

 

Let us know how that worked out for you!
