Steps to reproduce:
1. sudo pacman -S tribler
2. run tribler either from the GUI or from the terminal.

Expected results:
It runs and all features work.

Actual results:
A window opens with animated gears that spin endlessly. There's a file named f-tribler-[random_characters].log in the /tmp/, which ends with the following message:
ImportError: No module named OpenSSL

Additional info:
* package version(s): 7.1.0-1
* works fine if python2-pyopenssl is installed

Also, tribler package has optional dependency on vlc, but already depends on phonon-qt5-vlc, which depends on vlc. So there's either no need for this optional dependency for tribler, or probably it should depend on phonon-qt5-backend instead?

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

Today I installed Arch in a virtual machine, with gnome group only, and tried to install tribler 7.1.1-1 afterwards. Found the following missing dependencies:


Tribler doesn't start without the first three. Without the last two it starts, but complains in the log that those modules are not found.

I confirm this bug. Installed tribler yesterday (not in a VM), and it would not start without the first three.

After installing the above dependencies, I still get
