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
this worked for me but the version is 7.0.0 and i don’t know how to update it
Also worked on linux mint 19 cinnamon..!
This fixed my Viber with a white screen after a kernel upgrade.
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.
