I am using Spotify on wine on Linux (Ubuntu). It worked fine before, but after I uninstalled and re-installed it, for some reason every time I run it, it doesn't work.

It crashes after I log in. When it crashes I can see the Spotify window. When it crashes, Spotify has a note saying

We're sorry but you appear to be on an unsupported platform

In wine configuration, for audio, I have OSS Driver as the only sound driver activated.

Hardware Acceleration: Emulation
Default Sample Rate: 44100
Default Bits Per Sample: 16

These are the reccomended settings for wine (https://www.spotify.com/us/help/faq/wine/)

The following is the output to the console when I run Spotify:

I don't have any specific advice, but on one Xubuntu machine I installed Spotify on, it always crashed on startup until I upgraded the BIOS to the latest version.

On another machine, of a different make, the same thing happened. I didn't try to update the BIOS, but at one point, Spotify just started working; must have been due to the package updates that I'd installed in the meanwhile.
