Hi, I’m new to Tribler. I was just about to install it on my Ubuntu 20.04 remote server but was surprised to see that Tribler needs ~200 MB download worth of packages and that the install will take up ~550 MB additional disk space, with packages like Qt, VLC and gstreamer included. That’s a huge total size with stuff, like windowing and media playback, that I definitely don’t need on a small remote server.
Is it possible to run Tribler in a way similar to rtorrent/rutorrent or transmission-daemon, and in a smaller package without all the extra fluff? I saw some mentions of ‘headless Tribler’ and ‘Tribler cli’, but as I’m just familiarizing myself with Tribler, I could use some pointers in the right direction.
Edit: found this topic (Headless + WebUI) from Nov 2019 stating that GUI-less operation is not yet possible. Is the current situation the same, a half year+ later?
