Viber won't work anymore
« on: May 13, 2016, 10:03:22 am »
I used Viber many times a day. 
Now it doesn't anymore. I uninstalled and reinstalled a fresh download, but it does not start up.
Anybody an idea, how to solve this problem?

Certainly, WhatsApp is an alternative, which I use for certain contacts. I really would like to be able to use Viber again.

Thanks in advance for any help ..,.

Press Ctrl-Alt-T to open a terminal window. Enter
Code: [Select]
/opt/viber/Viber
Do you get an error message?

hi Zeb, what's the path to the binary that it runs from the launcher then? When I tried Viber it was giving me errors about missing GTK packages, I'm hoping there will be some clue from trying to run it in a terminal.

So what happens if you run:
Code: [Select]
/opt/viber/Viber
in the terminal ?

It looks like you may have downloaded it but not installed it.

That is correct.
Sorry that i wasn't clear about that.
I downloaded it from the Site of Viber. It looked like it installed correctly, but it wouldn't work.
I uninstalled en reinstalled it couple of times and must have left it finally uninstalled.
