Fix Spotify stuck in full screen (Ubuntu) installed from snap

Problem: I experienced Spotify being stuck in full screen mode. The title bar with minimize, maximize and close wasn't present and no keyboard shortcut I know about would exit full screen.

Solution:

@mastier has improved the solution - see here

Solution (old):

rm ~/snap/spotify/current/.config/spotify/prefs

Works both in 18.04.01 and 20.04.x

I got Spotify from snap, so the prefs are in ~/snap/spotify/current/.config/spotify/prefs

The culprit was removing this options

app.window.position.saved=true

For me too (Ubuntu 22.04.01 LTS on AMD, GNOME 42.2 and /etc/gdm3/custom.conf WaylandEnable=false (i.e. Xorg at the moment). Thanks, that was really irritating.

Just upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04.1 and had the same issue. I removed everything except for "autologin" information and it fixed the issue for me.
