Quite a few times I have encountered this problem, which I think is caused when the soundcard was recently used by another program and might still be busy but it means Spotify can’t play music, so a quick fix for this is to load winecfg and test your sound card which seems to force wine into tacking control of the it.
- Close Spotify
- In terminal type winecfg
- Click on the Audio tab (should be in the top middle)
- Click “Test Audio” and if you hear a sound this should work..
- Re-open Spotify and check a track, if it’s playing it’s worked otherwise you may have a different issue..
