Alternatives

I just added two alternatives, clementine and mopidy. the latter one I did not try miself, but it is packaged in the official repos (community) and it is advertised prominently on the product's homepage. Since there is no mopidy wiki article, I am not sure how much this info helps.. but maybe there is one in the future, then it could entail a section about spotify support.

Anyway, it would be great if someone stumbles upon another alternative, then add it. Thanks! --Hintze (talk) 08:23, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

Official Windows client through Wine

Currently running `wine SpotifyClient.exe` generates the following error message:

"Please install Spotify using a normal account Instead of an Administrator account."

The terminal displays the following:

``` fixme:module:load_library unsupported flag(s) used (flags: 0x00000800) ... (repeated) fixme:ntdll:NtQueryInformationToken QueryInformationToken( ..., TokenElevationType, ...) semi-stub fixme:module:load_library unsupported flag(s) used (flags: 0x00000800) ```

Global media hotkeys

Shouldn't this be put in Xmodmap or similar pages? Since things mentioned here not only working on Spotify.

Save to / Remove from your Liked Songs global hotkey

It was the only global hotkey I really missed, so I wrote a small bash script that programmatically clicks on the right place in Spotify app. I don't want to add it to the wiki since this solution is pretty ugly, it may not work in certain WM / DE (mine is Openbox), so use with care; I can suggest line-by-line debugging before use. Hope this helps someone Yaeuge (talk) 12:40, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Interface Scaling

I noticed that it's possible to scale Spotify interface by pressing ctrl and + to increase it, or ctrl and - to decrease it.

I'm not sure of how much (I would say 10% each time) but the scaling appears to be permanent. It's more intuitive and simple than the steps Spotify#HiDPI Mode section suggests.

Removal of sections regarding playback of local files

Playback of local files works seamlessly on spotifyAUR out of the box without any changes as tested on version 1:1.1.56.595-1. Consider removing sections and/or information regarding the playback of local files if it is working for everyone.

Feel free to mark the sections with Template:Remove. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 09:38, 16 April 2021 (UTC)
