Tribler runs in wine on Linux!


Because RedHat based Linux distributions don’t run Tribler (has to do with legal issues in cryptography), I was always struggling to get tribler to run on my OpenSuse system. I have made docker files and on other occasions I have completely recompiled openssl + pyhton + pyQt in a separate directory, just to get tribler to run.

I feel like such a fool now because I joust found out that the Windows x86 version runs perfectly on my Linux box. Just download the latest (x86) version of tribler from github. Then from within a console go to your download directory and type:

wine Tribler_7.2.2_x86.exe

Tribler will install and you can run it as normal from your start menu.
