Am I the only one? Does someone know of a way to disable those messages?
Yeah, I get that too. Honestly, I'm just happy Spotify is still working and a little error message doesn't bother me.
However, I assume you've checked the preferences to see if there's a way to disable Spotify social?
These messages don't kill me, but they do disturb. But, you are right, I'm damn happy Spotify still works, else my eMac had no more use for me right now (i still need a vga-adaptor to make it my DVD machine)
I checked the settings and there is none. I think it is because I'm logged in with my facebook credentials and they finally shut down the legacy support for social features. Maybe an email-only account would solve the problem
No, I have an email only account and I still get this message.
Hey, at least we ca stream music still!
And now a reversed Rosetta to run Intel Apps on PowerPC..
Windows 10 on ARM... They show it's possible
I find that the PPC version of Spotify works almost as well as the 1st generation iPad app (yes, I still carry one of these around ). I haven't found a way to bring up any artists that I'm following, but my playlists and starred songs sync just fine between all three of my machines (iPad 1, 12 inch Powerbook G4, and Mac Pro 2nd generation). The PPC version gives me an occasional playlist error, but eventually they all sync.
My playlists still work fine and that's all I use Spotify for. I got this email yesterday. Only had 8 kudos or whatever we need 50 (go figure).
Im guessing this project is dead now?
He said he couldn't get any further with it. You can PM him for the current version though. Despite how bad he makes it sound with all the bugs, it's really really nice!
Why not publish it here? Then we all could try our luck with it
I agree. @WalnutSpice could you do this?
Yeah I just didn't think it was allowed because it's kinda distributing software. There is nothing else I could do with this, I figured someone smarter than me could take it over. I'll fire up the G5 tomorrow and grab it and find the version I pulled the resources from. There was only one or two specific versions were the UI resources could be swapped into the old PPC version.
I will however, try faking the version numbers with the latest Mac version numbers to see if it makes the "this won't be supported soon" message to go away, but the new Social error probably won't.
No need, I can send you the copy you sent me. Then you can edit the link into post #1.

Tip for opening, click "Okay" on the first error and then just hold enter until it hits the sign in window
A few days ago I reinstalled KaOS Linux and the Spotify community package didn't work so I tried to get everything manually - didn't work. BUT I thought maybe one of us could figure how to compile it for PPC. The kcp installer somehow gets a source code so it could be possible...
Sorry to burst the bubble, I had a look at this and it pulls in the non free deb (debian package) from Spotify AMD64
so it basically installs the pre-compiled binary and there is no source-code only for the wm (WindowManager) GUI .
You're right, I didnt look at it close enough
I guess if we do it again and publish it here on MR and facebook powerpc groups we can get the 50 kudos..
