I’m going to preface this with, I am a newish Linux user, but I am fairly technically inclined…Just Linux stuff is almost like a different language to me.
So I’m not certain what is pertinent information for this, nor how I would get it without spending an unhealthy amount of time hunting the stuff down. So if there is further information that would help and/or be necessary, please let me know and direct me to a guide on how to get it if you don’t want to take the time to give me the step-by-step (which I would understand). Or at the very least give me a tip on what to google.
I am using I think the latest Manjaro KDE and my system is completely up to date as of like 30 minutes ago.
Ok, sorry. So the issue I’m having is I installed the legacy version of Deluge (because my trackers don’t support newer versions) from the add/remove programs GUI. When I would try to launch it, it seems a window would open, but then there was nothing. I tried launching through CLI and got the following output:
[ERROR ] 13:51:10 ui:171 No module named gobject
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/deluge/ui/ui.py”, line 152, in init

[ERROR ] 13:51:10 ui:172 There was an error whilst launching the request UI: gtk
[ERROR ] 13:51:10 ui:173 Look at the traceback above for more information.
I did some poking around and came across this post from the Arch forum and I followed the suggested steps:
Installing python2-gobject2 and pygtk
At which point Deluge would launch, but at launch, I would get a popup asking if I want to start thin client mode or not. I don’t but when I click that Deluge closes. Taking a closer look at the popup, it also says “To use Deluge standalone (Classic mode) please install libtorrent”.
So I installed libtorrent. But I’m still having the same issue. Launching from CLI got the following output:
/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/OpenSSL/crypto.py:14: CryptographyDeprecationWarning: Python 2 is no longer supported by the Python core team. Support for it is now deprecated in cryptography, and will be removed in the next release.
from cryptography import utils, x509
:0: UserWarning: You do not have a working installation of the service_identity module: ‘No module named service_identity’. Please install it from ************* and make sure all of its dependencies are satisfied. Without the service_identity module, Twisted can perform only rudimentary TLS client hostname verification. Many valid certificate/hostname mappings may be rejected.
Searching for “You do not have a working installation of the service_identity module” I found a post on the Arch forum post and as suggested there I installed python2-service-identity. But again same issue. Launching from CLI only gave the first message from the output posted above, but as before, after popup window Deluge closes. I also installed python2-twisted as well, but still having the issue.
I see that Deluge outputs a message indicating to make sure all dependencies are installed, but I don’t know how to check that on my system. If anyone can point me to a guide on how to do it, because I couldn’t find one searching myself.
Any other suggestions on where to go from here or how better to address the issue?
