@vazerick I'd recommend downgrading to a previous version, until they iron out some stuff in the current version. I'm using 0.9.11.27 and feels much better with Cinnamon.

Operating system: Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64-bit

Spotify version: 0.9.17.1

 

I'm unable to create new playlist or folder of playlists via "New Playlist" button or command bar on the top. The bar to type name appears but playlist/folder is not created. Similarly, I cannot change names of already existing playlists/folders.

Should I try some other version of Spotify? If so, which one would be the best?

@OhSeeEmilyPlay I use 0.9.11.27. Works great with Cinnamon and I don't feel the need to update it.

@osornios I uinstalled my Spotify and installed version that you suggested. Sadly it had the same problem :(

Now I installed latest stable version (I think), which is version 1.0.25.127 and it works!

Thank you for your reply :)

  1. Your device and operating system:
    I'm using Linux Mint Rosa 17.3
  2. Type of Spotify account you have (Free/ Premium): Premium
  3. The app version of Spotify you’re using:
    Soooo, I searched everywhere but can't find wich version I'm using. :(
  4. Brief description of the issue:

    Hi, I just signed up for spotify premium and after I downloaded the Desktop App I'm having this weird issue.
    I start spotify normally, but it doesn't show in the taskbar. So, always when I click in other window or minimize spotify, I can't find him anymore, execept by alt+tabbing to it. He continues to play even not showing in the taskbar.

  5. Steps to reproduce the issue:
    First I opened it, then i minimized it and BANG.

6. Attach the spotify-dump.txt ( $HOME/spotify-dump.txt ) from Advanced troubleshooting 4.

Could not find this too. Someone can tell me where is the spotify data directory is located? Couldn't find it. (It's not in home).

Some screenshots showing the problem are attached to my post.

BTW, sorry for my bad english, I'm Brazilian.

Fellow brazilian here, also using Linux Mint Rosa Cinnamon edition.
Also a premium subscriber which is not that happy with the current Linux player.

This is a known issue, which I hope will be fixed soon.
However, there is a workaround which is moving the player to another workspace and then moving it back.
It'll make the Spotifly player visible in the taskbar.

I recommend using the testing version (from the testing repository) since the latest patch corrected MPRIS2 (the version is 1.0.27).
For Linux Mint Rosa it means that in this latest version the sound applet works as it's supposed to work.
