Hello everyone,

 

Just a quick heads up that you can still install the old version ( 0.9.17 ) of Spotify via the repository if the 1.24 client is not working well for you.

 

 

sudo apt-get install spotify-client-0.9.17

Hope this helps!

Hey @mrcpfy,


It's from the stable repository.

Dreadolord, will it upgrade by itself to the broken one anytime in the future?

0.9.17 doesn't start at all after installed.

Thanks for this solution. It worked for me but I removed the latest version first, before installing version 0.9.17

 

I was having the same problems as others. Couldn't minimize to the tray, Spotify doesn't appear in the taskbar when running. At one point I was running 3 instances of spotify each playing it's own music and no way to stop it, except for the KILL command.

Hey @mrcpfy,

 

Can you start the client from the terminal and let me know the output?

You can check the first post for more advanced troubleshooting steps as well.

Hey @mrcpfy,

 

To me it looks like Spotify is not installed on your PC.

Can you give me the output of the following command:

 

dpkg-query -l 'spotify*'

Thank you! : - )
