@Ramona Thank you for the report. We will look into it.

Have you tried previous versions, for eg 7.2.0? If yes, does it crash as well?


Hello, just discovered tribler and thought i’d give it a shot.

I tried installing and running 7.2.1, 7.2.0-rc1, 7.1.5 and finally 7.0.1 in which i got the UI to startup. All other versions crashed twice while the window with the gears cranked on (behaviour described in other forum posts).

I tried two different magnet links for latest Ubuntu and both statuses are at ‘Building Circuits’. I have two other torrent clients that have been running fine behind my VPN using macOS 10.14.2. No forwarding of ports necessary.

any ideas would be great. i like the look of the app and features look right too. curious to use the channels and see what that’s about.

i hope this bug gets fixed soon!


In previous versions I had the same problem.
