Clementine not picking up being signed in to online cloud storage services?

Reddit - Wed, 2017-07-12 12:03

I click login in the settings and approve it in my browser but it never picks it up and still says not logged in... not a huge issue since I don't really have anything stored there but it would still be nice if it worked... is this a known bug or am I missing something here....

Version 1.3.1 from the standard arch repositories if it matters... if it's a bug that's fixed in a newer version I have no problem with pulling it from github or wherever and compiling myself (do that for video players anyway since I come from Gentoo (my first distro lol (remembers the days when an athlon64 was a top end cpu and compares it to today when 4 cores with a higher ipc/frequency is standard and the ryzens with their 8c/16t are even better (not to mention the threadripper with 16c/32t) and very affordable unlike Intel and their whole overpriced cpu lineup so great that AMD finally got it right again and gave us some awesome and very affordable cpus... totally putting one in my next computer and saying good bye to the i5 4460 in my current one...)... it's actually a good way to start using Linux imo and I'm not really sure why I'm on Arch now but switching back is kinda something that would take a bit of work and I'm lazy + compiling in the summer isn't fun due to the heat and all and Arch is good too so...) so I kinda want my -march=native and other compiler flags that make things a bit faster and video players are one of the things where you actually do get an above placebo performance increase by using them)....

Not sure if it's a support question that doesn't belong here or a 'does it happen to anyone else' question that should be good here so sorry if I'm breaking any rules by posting it...

  • How One Game Developer Views Steam's Refund Policy As A Boon In The Face Of Over $4 Million In Refunds

    It's been a little over a year since the Steam platform finally rolled out a true refund program for digital game purchases, with Microsoft quickly following suit. While gamers rejoiced at the news that every game purchase wasn't some form of a gamble, game developers reacted in a range generally between being nonplussed to vocally angry or fearful. The overall concern was that this move to shift the balance of Steam's supportive stance towards the consumer and away from the game developer would negatively impact the bottom line of developers now faced with a negative column in their sales metrics.
