I've got Ubuntu 14.04, Awesome WM and Spotify Linux Client Version: 0.9.11.27
Custom preference setting:
(If I don't do this, Spotify will freeze for 5/10 seconds after changing a song, it's unbearable.)
I'm trying to build my own notification bar which shouldn't be so difficult.
You can get your media info with dbus using:
dbus-send --print-reply --session \ --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.spotify \ /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 \ org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get \ string:'org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player' \ string:'Metadata'
Only problem is, because I have my track_notifications disabled, it will only return an empty array.
method return sender=:1.0 -> dest=:1.8 reply_serial=2 variant array [ ]
Does anyone know anything (at all) about this? Perhaps a workaround? Or some other way I could get my spotify metadata with this setting disabled?
Thanks in advance!
