In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Viber on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Viber is the ultimate messaging and VoIP application that lets you connect with friends and family across the globe for free. And the best part? It’s available on various platforms, including the widely popular Linux-based operating system, Ubuntu 22.04. So, are you ready to step up your messaging and calling the game? Let’s dive in and install Viber on Ubuntu 22.04.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Viber instant messaging and VoIP application on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.

Prerequisites

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Viber.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
