Also another problem that i have is that if spotify is not already playing in the background i am not able to play anything. whatever command i give. and the frontend does not even show the spotify logo. it just disappears on after one sec on start.
In that case, maybe, the module cannot find available active devices. It doesn’t mean you have no device. But by default, Spotify doesn’t know which device is yours unless it is powered and logged as your account.
So at least one of your devices need to be activated when this SDK is used. I recommend to install Raspotify, that could makes your spotify always on.
i am running from ubuntu laptop with Spotify application! i tried with raspotify to install but from what i understood it does not support the laptop arch!
