c3924754, this has happened to me before, but haven't seen the issue in some time. Iirc another workaround is to pause/play the song.

Is anyone else getting regular Spotify songs muted by this?
After running blockify a few seconds/minutes later Spotify is muted (while playing a normal song, not an ad).
I have to open my Mixer and unmute the application.
But it keeps happening afterwards. Anyone?

Yeah, could you please add a .desktop file for blockify-ui?

Why haven't a .desktop file for blockify-ui?

echo -e '[Desktop Entry]\nName=Blockify\nComment=Blocks Spotify commercials\nExec=blockify-ui\nIcon='$(python3 -c 'import pkg_resources; print(pkg_resources.resource_filename("blockify", "data/icon-red-512.png"))')'\nType=Application\nCategories=AudioVideo' | sudo tee /usr/share/applications/blockify.desktop

python-setuptools is defined as a makedepend. i've tested it and it is installed if missing. how did you get it to crash?
i could confirm the docopt issue and fixed it in blockify. I've also moved docopt from optdepends to depends. Thanks!

The packages python-setuptools and python-docopt should be defined as dependencies, the package crashes without them installed.

@InfernoZeus: Good idea. Can you submit a pull request on the legacy branch with an updated

InfernoZeus commented on 2016-05-10 13:23

I've just created a blockify-legacy package which works with spotify-stable, instead of spotify(-beta). @mikar, any chance of a mention on your Github project page?

Sorry! I did change the default symlink of /usr/bin/python before holidays and forgot about it. Everything works. :)

Did you change anything? Blockify 3.6.2 apparently installed as a python2 package on your system. That won't work.
