Hello, 

 

I tried today to install Spotify on Ubuntu 16.04, after installing i see the login mask. 

 

After entering my login data Spotify Crashs. What can I do here?

 

Thanks in advance.

Are you using a tun device?  I've found that if you do it'll cause spotify to crash.

if this returns anything you have tun devices.  They are most commonly used in VPNs.

 

ls /sys/class/net/*/tun_flags

Starting spotify with strace might help shed some light on why it crashes:

strace spotify > spotify.strace
