Your device and operating system: PC - Arch Linux 6.6.7 - Hyprland
Type of Spotify account you have (Free/ Premium): Premium
The app version of Spotify you’re using: 1.2.26.1187.g36b715a1
Brief description of the issue: Unable to open browser to log in
Steps to reproduce the issue: Download spotify flatpak, open using  flatpack run spotify, click log in, no browser opens

 

First I did this: delete and reinstall
Then I did that: give spotify full permissions in flatseal
I also did this: tried commands given above

 

6. Attach the spotify-dump.txt ( $HOME/spotify-dump.txt ) from Advanced troubleshooting: The file seems to be empty when i open it using vim in kitty

 

Certainly! To fix the issue with logging into Spotify from Flathub, you can install the xdg-desktop-portal-gtk package. Use the following command on Arch Linux:

sudo pacman -Sy xdg-desktop-portal-gtk
