    It looks amazing I will definitely give it a try. I've already installed kunst, but I've found it crashes a lot.

    Spicetify allows you to use custom UIs. Couldn't use Spotify without it. The new UI is straight up trash.

    The spotify player is Spotify Control and you'll need Spicetify as well to get it to work properly. I'm not going to lie, this was a huge pain in the ass to get working properly. Make sure you're not using the Windows Store version of Spotify and that the Spicetify config file is pointing to the correct paths.
  • Spotify not playing music?

    My spotify was working just fine until I recently tried to install spicetify. It didn't work so I uninstalled spicetify all is good right? Wrong, now whenever I try to play music it starts but without any audio and it stays at 00:00. I've tried uninstalling spotify along with all spotify related files and reinstalling but that doesn't work. Here are the logs I get when i try to launch spotify
