What works

Everything is working well enough to fully use all features of the program.

What does not

Doubleclicking the tray icon to hide/show Spotify does not work. Right clicking and selecting "Open spotify" or "Hide spotify" DOES work.

The introduction screen have some text in too small font to be able to read it properly. The font in the main program looks correct however.

Integration of spotify:// URI's in browsers need additional setup, see Extra comments for instructions.

Additional Comments

I also tried with Wine 1.1.6, however the sound is choppy there. With Wine 1.0.1, the sound is correct. I used the same "default" settings for sound (in winecfg) in both versions: ALSA driver: * Hardware acceleration: full * Default sample rate: 44100 * Default bits per sample: 16 * Driver emulation: unchecked For integration of spotify:// links with Firefox, follow these instructions (taken from official instructions at http://www.spotify.com/en/help/faq/wine/ ): To be abe to open spotify URIs you first need a simple script: echo '#!/bin/sh' > ~/.browser2spotify echo 'exec wine "C:\Program Files\Spotify\spotify.exe" /uri "$@"' >> ~/.browser2spotify chmod 755 ~/.browser2spotify (Change the path to the spotify executable if necessary) In Firefox enter the following in the URI field: about:config Right click and select New > Boolean and name it network.protocol-handler.external.spotify and set it to True Right click and select New > String and name it network.protocol-handler.app.spotify and set the name to ~/.browser2spotify
