How to make Viber works on ENDEAVOUROS MATE

I have a fresh installed ENDEAVOUROS MATE.
I did search in internet how to install Viber on ENDEAVOUROS and found that I have to use:

yay -S viber

I just have Viber installed, because I see it appears into Menu:

Applications
- Internet
-- Viber

The problem is when I click on Icon Viber into above menu it does not run.

How to make Viber works on ENDEAVOUROS MATE ?

Try to launch viber from the terminal and see if there are any error messages.

Excuse me, I never ran a program by Terminal, so I did something I think I have to do:

$ viber

It is likely that your keyboard layout is causing viber to crash. What keyboard layout are you using? Can you change the layout to us layout and try to launch viber again?

I am using :
English (UK)

I will add :
English (US) and will try again using it.

Remove English (UK) and then use English (US). Hopefully this will resolve the issue.

OK,
I will remove English (UK)

Thanks very much,
now I have an working Viber on ENDEAVOUROS MATE :ok_hand:

No problem. Though using a different keyboard layout shouldn’t cause an application to crash. This could be due to a bug in Viber. I suggest you bring this issue to the attention to Viber’s developers to further diagnose the issue.
