Building Guides

This page is one of a set of Building pages/guides for the different OSes with information on building Mumble/Murmur.

This guide describes the method to get a fully working and redistributable version of Mumble and Murmur that uses the Cocoa version of Qt 4.

To build Mumble you will need:

  • Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
  • Xcode 4.4

Creating a build environment

The git repository at https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble-osx-build contains pre-made scripts that build the current canonical Mumble OS X build environment.

Simply clone the repo, and cd into it:

 $ git clone https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble-osx-build
 $ cd mumble-osx-build

Create a MumbleBuild directory in your home dir:

 $ mkdir -p ~/MumbleBuild

Copy the 'env' script to the directory you created in the previous step:

 $ cp env ~/MumbleBuild/env

Source the env script to set up the proper environment variables for the Mumble build environment:

 $ source ~/MumbleBuild/env

Build the enviroment:

 $ ./build-all.bash

Once this is done, you should have a fully functional installation of Mumble's dependencies (tools and libs) in a self-contained MumbleBuild directory in your home directory.

Building Mumble

Make sure you've sourced ~/MumbleBuild/env into your current shell session:

$ source ~/MumbleBuild/env

Fetch the Mumble source from Git into a directory of your choosing:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble

To build the client, execute:

cd mumble
qmake -recursive -spec unsupported/macx-clang main.pro CONFIG+='release static opus no-server no-dbus no-ice'

If everything went well, you should now have a Mumble.app application bundle in the release directory of the root of the source tree.

Distributing Mumble

If you wish to create a proper redistributable Mumble application bundle, please refer to the osxdist.py script in the macx/scripts directory. This will help you clean up your application bundle, include the needed dependencies, resources etc., and create a compressed disk image - ready to redistribute!

The script expects you to be in the root of the source tree. After executing, it will spit out a .dmg of your Mumble build in the release folder.

If you only have a Mumble.app, and have not built Murmur, you should also pass the


parameter to the osxdist.py script. This will not attempt to package Murmur-specific files in the generated .dmg.

The script supports code signing, and among other things, allow you to build a copy of Mumble signed with your Developer ID certificates from Apple. To build with code signing enabled, use the following three parameters to the osxdist.py script:

  • --developer-id='<Name or Organization>'
  • --keychain=<keychain> (optional, defaults to 'login.keychain')
