I've got Spotify for Linux installed and for some reason I was getting duplicated notifications for song changes (different text as well). Now one of them is very bad, as it just shows the song title. The second one comes from spotify-notify (which I installed myself). I've been trying to figure out what program sends this other notification but to no avail. Is there a way to identify this program?

The newest Spotify release has inbuilt notifications. You don't need spotify-notify anymore.

  • Aha! I see, is there a way to change the format, or disable it so I only have spotify-notify? I'm saying because Spotify's built in notifications are horrible. It shows only the song title and sometimes the album title.

  • @HoshSadiq You can disable the notifications, but this will also remove the DBUS interface that spotify-notify uses. Unfortunately you will have to choose between no notifications at all, both notification systems at once, or the lacking inbuilt ones only :/. Hopefully this will be fixed with the next update.
