Lyrics from Genius
Strawberry 1.0/QT 6.2.0 on Windows 10
If I enable Genius only I don't seem to retrieve lyrics no matter how well-known the song. I am logged in to my Genius account. I tested AC/DC Back In Black just now with each of the choices and received results from AudD, ChartLyrics, and Musixmatch. Nothing from Genius, Lyrics.ovh or LoloLyrics. The only one of these sources I'm relatively familiar with is Genius since I visit it quite often outside of Strawberry. So I'm not sure which of these may actually be best. For now I just have all enabled. Not a huge deal but wondered why Genius doesn't seem to retrieve info.
My current priority in Settings is Genius, ChartLyrics, AudD, Musixmatch, Lyrics.ovh, LoloLyrics.

It works for me both on Linux and Windows, unchecking all other providers and just using Genius I get lyrics, tested with Peter Gabriel Red Rain right now.
If you click on Genius in the lyrics settings under providers, does it say logged in?
Yes, it states I am logged in. I actually logged it out, and reestablished it through the prompt I get in my browser from Strawberry requesting access to my Genius profile (api.genius.com OAuth federation). I actually let it sit a second and looked back at the Strawberry settings popup which was waiting for me to approve. I approved it and and it showed signed in status immediately. I then tested with Peter Gabriel "Solsbury Hill". No results. I enabled Musixmatch, restarted the song and showed lyrics immediately. Not sure what the problem might be.

Maybe something to do with your account.
Unfortunately errors when fetching lyrics is only logged to the console.
But you can probably see the error if you use the debug version available on https://github.com/strawberrymusicplayer/strawberry/releases/tag/1.0.0
There is a console in the background where errors are shown.
@jonas Sorry for the delay in responding. I'll get that debug version installed somewhere and see what it shows. Thanks!
@snakefinger I'm a bit lost on how to go about getting the debugger working.
To begin, I'm not sure which of the rpm files to use for OpenSuSE (el, fc, lp, mga).
Since I previously used lp I went with that and installed both debug-info and debug-source. I show debug-info installed along with the base version of Strawberry but nothing about debug-source which YaST software manager said was installed successfully. If I launch Strawberry the Console doesn't seem to do anything, and I don't see anything via command line that would indicate how to launch in debug mode. I hunted around but haven't found instructions on using the debugging/console features. Thanks for your help.
Note: If this would be easier in Windows I can try it that way.
