I installed Spotify using the official repository but the icon does not appear in Wingpanel. Someone with the same issue?

1 Answer 1


Spotify client is a QT-based application which relies on sni-qt to display it's indicator icon. Maybe somehow sni-qt got removed by uninstalling another application on your machine.

Check if sni-qt is installed:

dpkg -l | grep sni-qt

In case it's not, reinstall it:

sudo apt-get install sni-qt
  • Hi, I install Spotify from this tutorial linuxpitstop.com/… because I have 32 bit and work 100% but I want to integrate with the wingpanel, I have installed sni-qt but doesn't show in the bar
