I didn't say earlier, but I don't use spotify (which AFAIK is a
servantware app, which I normally can't run even if I wanted to, because
I can't agree to the liability waiver they demand if I can't inspect the
code or have someone I trust inspect, because I won't take responsibility
for what they don't give me a way to inspect, and without that they don't
give me permission to run the code, so I don't).
So I can't try with that specific app.
However, FWIW, the window rule action for titlebar colorscheme is fairly
new, and from what I can tell, still very bugged-out/broken. It's
effectively broken here. It appears to do nothing, and most of the time,
it resets to breeze no matter what I tried to reset it to. And even tho
it says breeze and that's not my default, it doesn't seem to do anything
-- it doesn't change it from the custom scheme that /is/ my default.
I'd say that's because I'm running live-git and that functionality is
broken ATM, but if so, it has been broken thru several releases now, ever
since I noticed the setting and tried it the first time. It just doesn't
seem to work. I guess the other reasonable possibility is that it needs
something that I don't have installed, since I have a pretty lite
installation here, no policykit or baloo installed here (options disabled
at build-time via gentoo USE flags), for instance.
So if you've gotten it to change a titlebar to some non-default color
scheme at all, as it seems you have, you've gotten farther with it than
I've managed to accomplish.
