Installing Viber (SOLVED)
« on: March 23, 2019, 05:21:40 am »
I tried to install Viber by downloading the package. It did install, but didn't work.
Probably because Viberís Linux builds were abandoned and its maintainer stopped further development
I searched the internet to find a solution.
This one works  perfectly:

sudo apt install snapd -y
To install Viber:
sudo snap install viber-unofficial

After installation, you have to restart the computer. After that you can find Viber in the application menu. Viber needs to be installed in your mobile phone to use in Laptop or desktop in Linux. You can install Viber in your mobile phone using Playstore for Android.

To remove Viber from the system, run below commands for Ubuntu:

sudo snap remove viber-unofficial

Good to know, thanks jozefmw. Probably should have made this a "User Submitted Tutorial".
What was I thinking?

Yes but why? There's absolutely no justification for it.
