flatpak is already part of CentOS 7 and just needs a yum install to get it.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

Run it in an X session. It's a GUI application and wants to display a screen.

Also, DON'T RUN IT AS ROOT!

It's an application that needs a GUI running to display its window on. If you don't have a GUI then you will be the error about "Could not connect to display".

Never run anything as root that doesn't need to be run as root to do its job. A bittorrent client does not need to be root and there are extremely good reasons why you should never run it as root.

If you're still running it as root: STOP

Thanks for the link (btw. is dead atm), working seems to be this one.
I can't bealieve how easy it was on CentOS:
yum install epel-release;yum install qbittorrent-nox;qbittorrent-nox --webui-port=8080
(it apparently works on numerous GNU/Linux https://pkgs.org/download/qbittorrent-nox)
Believe it or not, i can access the web interface and torrents working :D Thanks alot!
Then to run it at boot: echo "@reboot root qbittorrent-nox -d --webui-port=8080" > /etc/cron.d/qbt;chmod 600 /etc/cron.d/qbt
Excuse me, if i have user account "userabc", how do i make sure qbittorrent-nox will run at boot under this user?
