I am yet to see this software download a single file.
After downloading half a torrent, tribler complains of not enough disk space.
I free up plenty of disk space, but I cannot figure out how to simply restart the torrent.
I see a stop button and a triangle but then find the triangle means “stream”. I don’t want to stream, I just want to resume the download.
Upon reboot tribler fails to start any torrent.
I eventually realize ubuntu thinks it’s a clever idea to not mount any partition until the files are accessed in the file manager.
So to get a torrent to download I have to open a file manager and open the destination partition before running tribler. Why can the file manager mount the partition but not tribler?
Or perhaps the issue is that the destination partition is not being downloaded to directly?
All I know is I am sick of watching torrents download data for hours only for that data to be erased over and over again with no torrent ever completing.
And as for speed, even with anonymity disabled a healthy torrent downloads at a snail’s pace, as if it is connecting to only one peer with a dial up modem.
Almost all of the torrent in the built in channels feature are dead. What is the point of displaying a thousand seedless torrents for every torrent which can actually be downloaded?
