I have installed Viber 64 bit version and it worked just after the installation. However once I closed it, there is no way to launch it again.

I even tried going to install directory and launching still nothing happens. Please help..

  • Try starting it up via terminal, and then see what kinda error it throws at you – blade19899 Aug 3 '14 at 17:28
  • Hi, I did, it doesn't give any error or feed back, it just go to the next line like nothing happened. But still it doesn't launch. – Bmax Aug 3 '14 at 18:05
  • Purge and reinstall? – blade19899 Aug 3 '14 at 21:05

We just released a new version of Viber for Linux. Please update your Viber version at http://www.viber.com/en/products/linux and this should resolve your launch issue.

  • for me it never worked, i tried both deb and rpm... any solution? – rafi Jul 28 '16 at 18:23
  • In some cases, there could be a Viber process already running which prevents you to launch viber. Try: ps aux | grep Viber in terminal. If it shows a viber process already running, kill it by: sudo kill -9 <viber_process_id_from_previous_command>. Try launching viber again. – freerunner Mar 19 '17 at 16:18
