There is a small issue: viber doesn't start minimizer with viber StartMinimized command. That's because /usr/bin/viber doesn't pass arguments to /opt/viber/Viber.

Please, append "$@" to /usr/bin/viber like so:

!/bin/sh exec /opt/viber/Viber "$@"

It would also be great to have an option to start Viber in the system tray, not just minimized, maybe with wmctrl:


if [ "$1" = "StartMinimized" ]; then { sleep 1;
while ! pid=$(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 /opt/viber/Viber "$@"

+1 for the solution with removing the ~/.cache/qtshadercache directory.

+1 removing ~/.cache/qtshadercache solved issue

I've deleted ~/.cache/qtshadercache/*... After that I've got an error: '/opt/viber/Viber: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory'... So, I've copied in in /usr/lib & /usr/lib32 directories... Now everything works perfectly...

There was no such issue on my home PC with Nvidia GeForce and proprietary drivers...

It works, but the font is displayed in the color of the current background even when the text is highlighted...

It works perfect when started as sudo...

Same issue, but I did downgrade to all Qt5 updates and still not working.

Just-Punk commented on 2019-02-11 01:00

The same issue.

Same issue after the QT update as DmitrySkibitsky commented.
