Can I somehow put Viber notification icon on top of the Unity panel (near Dropbox and others)?! It's pretty ugly to stay in top left corner...
Solution - use Viber wrapper to launch the program
To fix this, you need to install Viber Indicator package, which is a wrapper for Viber.
Once it's installed, use
viberwrapper-indicator (showing gray icon in the notification area) instead of
viber (which shows the purple icon).
You may also later add
viberwrapper-indicator to startup programms.
Here's how to install the indicator wrapper via PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install viberwrapper-indicator
Alternatively download the
.deb file, and install it manually:
After the download of the
sudo dpkg -i viberwrapper-indicator_0.1.1-git20150611-webupd8-0_amd64.deb
After installation it will look like you - and others would - want it:

Log out and Log in.

And the icon appears in the right place:
