  • I use Debian buster/sid with libcurl4 installed, so libcurl3 cannot be installed. I followed the link that user290392 pointed out and, in order to be able to install, I tried and changed the libcurl3, which is specified in the DEBIAN/control, to libcurl4. It works just fine, till now...

Is Viber.zip not for Windows?

If you go here you can get a .deb file.

Install it with Gdebi.

There are instructions for moving Viber and creating a symlink in Debian here

  • I tried to install Gdebi but it was wrong

  • Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y dpkg: warning: 'ldconfig' not found in PATH or not executable dpkg: warning: 'start-stop-daemon' not found in PATH or not executable dpkg: error: 2 expected programs not found in PATH or not executable Note: root's PATH should usually contain /usr/local/sbin, /usr/sbin and /sbin E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

You need to change DEBIAN/control. For that you need to download viber.deb, extract the deb, fix DEBIAN/control and make a new deb package. It's described here: https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?pid=71634#p71634

Just make sure to use root or fakeroot to preserve file permissions and ownership.
