  1. Viber in debian wheezy has to be installed in another way:
    #the following method worked for me:
    sudo mkdir /opt/Viber1/
    sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/Viber1
    cd /opt/Viber1/
    wget http://download.cdn.viber.com/cdn/desktop/Linux/Viber.zip
    wget http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/e/eglibc/libc6_2.15-0ubuntu10.7_amd64.deb
    wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/e/eglibc/libc6-dev_2.15-0ubuntu10.7_amd64.deb
    # now we have to unzip Viber:
    unzip Viber.zip
    cd Viber
    mkdir libc6_2.15
    cd libc6_2.15
    # now we have to unzip both deb files in the same folder:
    dpkg -X ../../libc6-dev_2.15-0ubuntu10.7_amd64.deb .
    dpkg -X ../../libc6_2.15-0ubuntu10.7_amd64.deb .
    #now execute Viber
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=lib/x86_64-linux-gnu .././Viber

  3. Everything is very open and very clear explanation for ubuntu viber. was truly information, keep moving

  4. On Linux Mint 18.1 Serena I had to install libcurl3 first, then install viber:
    sudo apt install libcurl3
    sudo dpkg -i viber.deb
    sudo apt-get -f install

  5. On ubuntu 18.04 I have libcurl conflicts, viber requires libcurl3 and other packages (specifically php_curl-7.2) require libcurl4. VirtualBox, Slack etc work with either 3 or 4.
