It's hard to belive, but this works sometimes:

 

while true; do spotify && exit; done

I'm having a similar problem on Ubuntu 18.04 using the MATE desktop environment:

 

$ spotify --disable-gpu --disable-software-rasterizer
[1020/210753.085523:FATAL:gpu_data_manager_impl_private.cc(439)] GPU process isn't usable. Goodbye.
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

 

As you can see, I tried the --disable-gpu command, and the Chromium command --disable-software-rasterizer, but with very little success. Also, the times it does work, it tells me that I'm offline!

I'm on Archlinux and I have the same problem. Sometimes I can start Spotify, though, and recently I noticed in the .config/spotify/prefs-file that the user name was in all lower-case. I changed it and then spotify started. But I fear that this is only a coincidence.

Same issue, no solution. Sometimes rebooting helps. There is no pattern.

Once it decides it's going to stop working for a session, that's it.

Sometimes it will open but it's just a black screen.

 

Most of the time it's this:

 

$ cat /etc/issue.net
Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
$ spotify --disable-gpu --disable-software-rasterizer
[1206/122933.629502:FATAL:gpu_data_manager_impl_private.cc(439)] GPU process isn't usable. Goodbye.

Thanks a lot.

spotify --no-zygote

works for me well.
