Tribler crashes (Manjaro Linux) [solved]


Hi there,

I have here a Manjaro Linux with Kernel 5.9.16, Python 3.9,1 and Tribler 7.6.1-1

After starting Tribler, I got a crash with the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/opt/Tribler/”, line 12, in
from tribler_core.config.tribler_config import CONFIG_FILENAME
File “/opt/Tribler/tribler-core/tribler_core/config/”, line 9, in
from validate import Validator
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘validate’

Any idea how to fix this? Thank you.


Did you install from source? In that case, you should have installed all the dependencies. For this one, try pip install validate.


I installed Tribler from an AUR. Validate seems to be the problem.

pip install validate has the following output:

Any ideas?


Got it…there were two different versions of configobj installed. Removed both and installed that from requirements.txt - now it works :star_struck:
