I'm powering off my Lubuntu machine with a physical power button (shutdown -P) and Spotify doesn't save the last volume level setting. iirc the shutdown sequence sends a signal (SIGTERM ?) to all running processes telling them to die and it seems that Spotify doesn't save the volume when it exits afer catching that signal. Anyone knows if there is a signal I can send during shutdown to make Spotify save the volume level before it exits? This machine doesn't have a monitor attached to it, so can't close the app interactively. Perhaps I can add a shutdown hook to close it via the windowing system basically simulating a mouse click. Any other ideas?


I think it is reasonable to expect that a program should exit gracefully on SIGTERM. If it doesn't do that, it should be considered a bug and be fixed. I will try to see if I can fix it. There is also a different way to shutdown down the client and that is to send Quit to Spotify's MPRIS D-Bus interface, but that is not implemented either, which should also be fixed.

is there any way to disable the dynamic window title? i mean the feature that replaces the window title for the song and artist playing, my theme have no icons for the taskbar and i prefer the app to simply say Spotify Premium like it used to do on the 0.9.X version.

In the meantime xdotool can set window title ... which is a hack, of course, but it's possible. :)

Am I missing an easy way to find the changelog for the Linux client? Changes are always welcome but I never know what they are.

I can't login to my premium account from my app (both on the newest version and 0.9.17) on my ubuntu 14.04. I tried both login via facebook and email but to no avail (gave out Error Code 7 and 2 respectively). Prior to that I deleted my cache directory because I changed my download quality options on settings to Extreme Quality and I wanted to re-download all my songs on that quality. This however doesn't happen on my Android phone, since I can login very well on my phone even though I also deleted the cache. And I also can login via the desktop web.

i'm sure theres a quick fix for this one. when spotify loads up it goes full-screen with no window boarders so i'm unable to minimize / move/ unmaximize the app as there is nothing showing. i have to alt-tab to another app to get my desktop panel at the bottom of the screen back.

its like i've pressed the 'full-screen' button while watching a movie but theres no esc button.

 

any ideas?

Hi everyone,

I successfully installed Spotify Client 1.0.49.1.25 on LUBUNTU 16.04 but can't login.
This is the output:

couldn't find any solution on the net. Any suggestions?

How can I report issues with the testing version? I reverted to stable now, but I am worried the bug will be introduced in stable later on.

 

The problem is a chrome issues in combination with xorg and intel graphics. When I launch Spotify client on an external monitor with larger resolution than QHD the entire screen goes black.

Chrome has the same problem for certain sites and I suspect it's been introduced in the Spotify client as well now.
