@bcc - this was the solution for me.

I assume you updated, this caused some scaling changes to be removed.

To resolve:
$ which spotify

$ sudo vim /usr/bin/spotify
1 #!/bin/sh
2 /usr/share/spotify/spotify "$@"

should be:
1 #!/bin/sh
2 /usr/share/spotify/spotify --force-device-scale-factor=1.0000001 "$@"

So we add the following:

I just get /usr/bin/spotify: line 2: 6740 Segmentation fault (core dumped) /usr/share/spotify/spotify "$@" and it doesn't start

Done! Thanks for pointing that out. I haven't updated pkgrel as it won't affect those with installed already.

Please remove the install file, it's superseded by hooks

@orschiro Any progress on those orphaned files?

Are you tired of fixing the --force-device-scale-factor=X issue every single time this package updates?

# copy the launcher into the local overrides
cp /usr/share/applications/spotify.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/

# edit ~/.local/share/applications/spotify.desktop
# so that the following
# Exec=spotify %U
# becomes this:
Exec=spotify --force-device-scale-factor=2 %U
# use --force-device-scale-factor=1.0000001
# if you are not on HiDPi screen

P.S. you need to relaunch your Desktop Manager after

Even with this latest version ( I'm still getting the CURL_OPENSSL_3 errors. I reinstalled spotify and libcurl-compat to no avail. Cleaned out ~/.config/spotify. Nothing helps. Any ideas?

@AWhetter Can confirm, I installed ffmpeg0.10 and the problem went away
