I tried to get Tribler running on OpenSuse but utterly failed because RedHat based distributions have some options disabled in openssl that are necessary to run Tribler. Running Tribler from Ubuntu in Virtualbox is a little over the top on a small laptop.
I therefore made a Dockerfile that allows one to run Tribler from any machine. If you have docker installed on your machine you can try it out as follows:
docker run -ti --name tribler2 -p 5901:5901 -v /$HOME/Tribler/Downloads:/root/Downloads -v /$HOME/Tribler/.Tribler:/root/.Tribler pipo2004/triblerdocker /bin/bash
When the file has finished downloading, you will be presented with a bash prompt. From there type vnc.sh
This will start a vnc server. Now you can go back to your normal bash command prompt by pressing CTRL+p+q
Then start your favorite vncviewer and point it to localhost:5901. You will see an Ubuntu desktop from where you can start tribler. The downloads and tribler directory structure will be found in your home folder in the Tribler directory.
