Symlink /usr/bin/viber starting with lowercase letter. This causes firejail profile to fail. Minor inconvenience, not sure if should be fixed.

I updated the package, sorry for the delay. @vyachkonovalov I applied the most of your changes, thanks for your work.

Oops, I made a mistake and removed PKGBUILD before making a git diff :D
Here is my patch, without unnecessary eula.html and viber (shell script) files, proper LICENSE, also fixed sed replacement for viber.desktop.

@bbolgradov I manually added a new line at the end of your downloaded patch and I was able to successfully proceed with viber installation. Thank you

Should be fixed now. Github gists seem to get their last newline stripped.

@iraklisg Same for me. Just use bbolgradov's patch as a reference and update the version and hash manually, worked nicely for me :)

@bbolgradov @vyachkonovalov Thank you for your reply.

Interestingly, running git apply viber- gives me the following error:

error: corrupt patch at line 2

The same applies to vyachkonovalov's solution were I get:

error: corrupt patch at line 176

Am I missing something? Can I provide you some extra information?

@vyachkonovalov, that's a strange patch you've got there.

Here's a working one that simply bumps the version.

yay -G viber
cd viber
git apply viber-
makepkg -sci

Wow, this version is so outdated.

@iraklisg Current is, here is the patch

How to apply the patch:

yay -G viber # not sure about this one, I don't use yay
cd viber
curl -O ''
git apply PKGBUILD.diff
makepkg -si

Installing via yay:

Validating source files with md5sums...

    eula.html ... Passed

==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!
Error downloading sources: viber

Choosing the package to be Clean builded did not do the trick for me:
