Maybe it depends on the mastodon instance you are using?

IIRC you can use
anbox-tool enable. Haven't tried it myself as I currently have no phone running UT.
RE: paypal donation does not work
Whatever it was, my general login problem was temporary. Customer support asked the usual questions. So I tried a different browser. That worked. And also my normal browser was ok again today. But I didn't transfert money to UBPorts, that might be a different issue.
RE: UT is ram-hungry
As for the 2nd part, being read-only in the root file system has 2 main reasons, which were reiterated in the forum, in the supergroup so many times already:
Maybe you should post that sentence and the rest of your post as a separate topic "Why Ubuntu Touch isn't like your Ubuntu on PC"
RE: Anbox apps not working
I was wrong, it still works
1. Pull the APKs of your Android phone
Connect your Android phone with USB debugging enabled.
Get the package name of Spotify:
> adb shell pm list packages | grep spotify package:com.spotify.music
Get the file location of the APK:
> adb shell pm path com.spotify.music package:/data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/base.apk package:/data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.armeabi_v7a.apk package:/data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.de.apk package:/data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.xxhdpi.apk
Pull all the files to your computer:
adb pull /data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/base.apk spotify.base.apk adb pull /data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.armeabi_v7a.apk spotify.split_config.armeabi_v7a.apk adb pull /data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.de.apk spotify.split_config.de.apk adb pull /data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.xxhdpi.apk spotify.split_config.xxhdpi.apk
2. Push the APK files to the UT phone
Now disconnect your Android phone and connect your UT phone with USB debugging enabled.
Push the files to the phone:
adb push spotify* /home/phablet/Downloads
3. Install the APK files on the UT phone
While the UT phone is still connected via USB, first open a shell on the phone:
Next commands are executed on the phone!
cd Downloads adb install-multiple -p spotify*
Unfortunately the new app drawer (which has replaced the old app scope) doesn't refresh and I don't know how to refresh the installed app icons manually.
So it seems you have to reboot the UT phone before you can tap on the Spotify icon and start listening to music.
RE: Anbox apps not working
Unfortunately I don't have Spotify on my UT phone anymore so I can't check which version it was.
When I try to get the APK from my Lineage phone now, I get this
> adb shell pm list packages | grep spotify package:com.spotify.music > adb shell pm path com.spotify.music package:/data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/base.apk package:/data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.armeabi_v7a.apk package:/data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.de.apk package:/data/app/com.spotify.music-PrDoHptneXuzOEGlVbRlqg==/split_config.xxhdpi.apk
I'm pretty sure back when I had it working on UT, it was a single APK file, not a split APK like this.
I guess this won't work anymore
