Upgraded my Nvidia driver just now from 396.24.0 to 396.24.02, rebooted, and Spotify no longer works. It opens a window but never draws anything but a black screen.

cxf@PC:~$ snap run spotify
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gail"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge"
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"
ATTENTION: default value of option force_s3tc_enable overridden by environment.
libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

Spotify black screen.

  • You'll have to wait until the snap is updated or use the .deb version which works fine (spotify-client 1:1.0.77.338.g758ebd78-41 – doug Jun 5 '18 at 4:10

Until fixed snaps are available, you can start spotify without GPU accelerated graphics

# snap run spotify --disable-gpu
