How To Install Viber In Linux 32 Bit And 64 Bit Systems

how to install viber in linux

Viber is an app similar to skype that can be used to make free phone calls, send text messages, photos, stickers and video calls through the Voice Over Internet Protocol technology(VOIP). If offers a great sound quality that is much better than a regular call and you don't need to pay a cent when communicating with viber users.

Free calls, no advertisements. Who wants annoying adds? You can also call any number that doesn't have Viber at low rates using ViberOut. What platforms does the Viber app support?

Viber works on almost every Android, iPhone, Blackberry, Windows Phone, Nokia and Bada devices. There is also a beta release for Linux that runs only on 64-bit systems. I know there are many linux users out there running 32 bit version systems, no need to worry, I have a solution for them too.

Since there is not an official Viber client for Linux 32 bit systems we will install the Viber.exe app with the help of a free implementation of Windows on Unix, Wine.

1. Install Wine with the following command.

sudo apt-get install wine

2. Download ViberSetup.exe file.

wget http://download.cdn.viber.com/cdn/desktop/windows/ViberSetup.exe

3. Install the Viber app

wine ViberSetup.exe

Update

Now ubuntu officially support viber and 64 bit version is available for download for linux.
