I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and I've installed Viber and I'm struggling for days with this problem. My Viber icon is located at the top left corner, few milimeters to the right from the dash icon. I have tried to whitelist it on desktop enviroment variables, it wroked with Skype, but not with Viber. Please help.

No, I've used the .deb package from their site. – Tomislav Mar 25 '14 at 1:17

Before do this ways, install gnome fallback first by running this commands:

sudo apt-get install gnome-session-fallback

And if the proccess is finish, log out and change desktop environment by clicking ubuntu logo near login field, choose Gnome Fallback and then log in back.

  1. Place your cursor on panel
