Choosing the package to be Clean builded did the trick for me:

  1 viber                                    (Installed) (Build Files Exist)
==> Packages to cleanBuild?
==> [N]one [A]ll [Ab]ort [I]nstalled [No]tInstalled or (1 2 3, 1-3, ^4)
==> 1

File checksum is outdated again.

Edit: curiously, the .deb still says

Same as others, viber.deb does not pass validity check

@setevoy There are not only visual updates but also functionality updates too. Now you can edit/pin posts, view polls, and in general, you got the same functionality as Windows client. It seems like Viber is developed in qt in both Windows and Linux, and if they wanted they could always give an updated version of Viber. Even the EOL email response we get from them, it seems to me more like an automated response, rather than a real EOL response.

Trying to install from scratch, have the same Issue as madjoe (==> ERROR: One or more files did not pass the validity check!).

Any suggestions?

setevoy commented on 2019-03-17 18:02

Upgraded it yesterday - can't see any issues at all. And yes - it looks a bit different than a previous one (but I may be wrong although - didn't pay to much attention on it).

Blocked Viber update for now as it seems to be an injection. [sorry, wrong link] .... I tried to learn about any Viber development process for Linux, any updated version different from 7 point something: no data at all! And Viber support continues replying “stopped development and updates in Linux...”. Viber distribution model to be blamed, viber.deb was always viber.deb whether it was about version 6 or version 7. Probably, someone somehow was able to hack this outdated developed stuff replacing it with “new” version 10. In absence of other news or reliable info, I’d prefer NOT to update Viber. Please, correct if I’m wrong.

sleep for 1 sec didn't do the trick for me - the delay wasn't enough for 'wmctrl -i -c "$wid"' command to minimize Viber window - increasing to 4 sec works. Also there is some scale window and tray icon issues for me with ext monitor - setting 'QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0' resolves them. So i ended up with next code:


if [ "$1" = "StartMinimized" ]; then { sleep 4; while ! pid=$(pidof /opt/viber/Viber); do sleep 1; done; [ -n "$pid" ] && wid=$(wmctrl -p -l | grep Viber | grep " $pid " | awk '{print $1}') && wmctrl -i -c "$wid"; } & fi exec env QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0 /opt/viber/Viber "$@"
