Linux, Mint (Ubuntu)
My Question or Issue
I installed the app by using snap.
In some moments the UI of app is stops working, so it's like you see a screenshot, you can't press anything. But music is still going, and looks like the main soft loop is working, but UI doesn't response. The only thing left - is closing the app and relaunch it. I also can't see any error messages in the console, but after every start I see 2 strings:
Gtk-Message: 11:20:21.737: Failed to load module "gail"
Gtk-Message: 11:20:21.737: Failed to load module "atk-bridge"
little update - UI is responsing, but it's just don't rendering. so I can press some buttons (next, prev, pause) by clicking on places where they are. But again, I don's actually see what I pressed.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Many users have had success installing Spotify the 'original' way, instead of snap:
Command line commands:
curl -sS https://download.spotify.com/debian/pubkey.gpg | sudo apt-key add - echo "deb http://repository.spotify.com stable non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/spotify.list
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install spotify-client
However, if you're not bothered to reinstall, a way to 'un-freeze' the UI is going to the currently playing track and attempting to drag it around.
Hope this helps, have a nice day 🙂
