elementary OS Asked by hpr on July 26, 2020
When closing Spotify, the music stops, but the windows doesn’t quit. Clicking repeatedly gives me a "Force Quit" option, as Spotify has stopped responding.
When listening to music via Spotify, (installed via snapstore; Premium Account) I can see and control the current song via the media control on the wingpanel.
However, I’m missing any kind of album art. I only ever get the default "music" icon.
I’ve seen in this post that the OP could see their album art from Spotify,
so I assume it must be something about my configuration.
Spotify is installed via the snap store, I have a Premium Account, I’m on Elementary OS 5.1.6 Hera.
I can’t recall ever not having the aforementioned problems, but just to be sure, all I remember to have changed regarding Spotify:
Update: With a little patience, it seems, Spotify does close normally, although very slowly in my opinion. However, Problem 2 persists
Update 2: While Spotify’s still usable, I’ve taken the problem as a motivation to install mopidy with a spotify backend and iris frontend instead, which was admittedly a totally overblown solution.
I’d still prefer Spotify to work completely, as I’m stubborn like that, but oh well.
Remove Spotify installed from flathub.
Remove Spotify installed old way via terminal.
sudo apt purge spotify
Install Spotify via terminal:
sudo apt install spotify
