Install the dependencies

For Mumble/Murmur 1.1.0 and greater (including SVN), Qt 4.3 is required. For the 1.0.0 release, Qt 4.2 is sufficient.

For Gentoo

Note: Make sure you have sqlite and/ or sqlite3 in your USE flags in /etc/make.conf, if you haven't emerged qt4 with these before, you need to reemerge it.

emerge dev-libs/boost media-libs/speex x11-libs/libXevie x11-libs/qt (See Note)

For Debian / Ubuntu

apt-get install qt4-dev-tools libqt4-dev libspeex1 libspeex-dev libboost-dev libasound2-dev libxevie-dev libxevie1 libssl-dev g++

It's recommended to remove the package qt3-dev-tools if installed.

If you want to use versions of Mumble greater greater than 1.0, you'll need to use Debian lenny or Ubuntu Gutsy, as they are the only versions supporting Qt 4.3.

Download the source

Get the mumble source

svn co mumble
cd mumble/

Compile Mumble and Murmur (Mumble server)


Alternatively, if you are using Debian:


Push to talk

For using push to talk, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Section "Extensions"
    Option "XEVIE" "Enable"

Restart the Xserver.

Note: If you use Mumble 1.1.0 or newer, you don't need to enable Xevie, if you run mumble as an user with read access to /dev/input

Text to Speech

For text-to-speech voices you will need to install festival and at least a voice. Most distros ship packages for that in their repositories.

Run Mumble

cd release

Run Murmur
