The Basic Problem
While technically speaking the new version of Spotify (126.96.36.199) can run to some extent with Toastify, it appears that Toastify album art is broken, keyboard commands have been reported to lag, and I've personally found that the new version of Spotify when
running with Toastify is significantly more taxing on my processor than older versions (or when Toastify is disabled).
Update to the new version of Toastify (1.8.3). In terms of the functionality that I use, the new Toastify version works flawlessly.
With Spotify version 188.8.131.52.g42187855
the latest version of Toastify causes errors and crashing.
When I launch Toastify now, two command line windows open in addition to Spotify. The first one is blank, the second one says this:
[0219/000031:ERROR:main_delegate.cc(764)] Could not load cef_extensions.pak
If I close the blank command prompt Spotify crashes/closes.
If I close the second one I get a third saying this:
[0219/000200:ERROR:main_delegate.cc(764)] Could not load cef_extensions.pak
[0219/000200:ERROR:gles2_cmd_decoder.cc(14033)] [.Compositor-0E27E640]GL ERROR :GL_INVALID_OPERATION : glCreateAndConsumeTextureCHROMIUM: invalid mailbox name
[0219/000200:ERROR:gles2_cmd_decoder.cc(7430)] [.Compositor-0E27E640]RENDER WARNING: texture bound to texture unit 0 is not renderable. It maybe non-power-of-2 and have incompatible texture filtering.
This third error message is displayed again if I try to close that command prompt but after that the errors go away.
Technically speaking Spotify will run and appear to work properly with Toastify as long as the blank command prompt is left open.
I believe what is breaking are Toastify album covers in notifications. I've been listening to music for several hours both online and offline and not once has Toastify displayed an album cover.
