This page shows you directions on how to install and use Mumble (client) and Murmur (server). For complete usage information, see [[Mumbleguide|Mumbleguide]], [[Murmurguide|Murmurguide]], and/or the respective subsections on the main page.
==Windows==
 
Just head to [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=147372 SourceForge downloads page], get the Windows executable and run it. Follow the installer instructions and you are done.
 
 
 
Also, you can build Mumble yourself from source as described in [[BuildingWindows]].
 
  
==Linux==
+
__TOC__
If you want to compile your own version of Mumble, you can read some help in [[BuildingLinux]].
 
  
===Ubuntu ===
+
=Getting and Installing Mumble and Murmur=
  
In hardy, the 1.1.X series is included, so just
+
==Windows==
apt-get install mumble mumble-server
 
 
 
If you are running gutsy, or want a newer version than what is available in the official repository, you can download the .deb package avalaible at [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=147372 SourceForge] and install it with your package manager.
 
 
 
Alternately you can use the PPA for mumble builds, which can be found at [https://edge.launchpad.net/~slicer/+archive launchpad]. The PPA builds are not signed, but they include builds for both i386 and amd64. Add the PPA to your list of sources, and you can ''apt-get install'' it and it will automatically track new releases of Mumble.
 
 
 
===Fedora===
 
Fedora 7 RPMs: [http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=227582&name=mumble-1.1.0-1.fc7.i386.rpm 1.1.0 i386] [http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=227581&name=mumble-1.1.0-1.fc7.x86_64.rpm 1.1.0 x86_64]
 
Fedora 8 RPMs: [http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=231652&name=mumble-1.1.0-2.fc8.i386.rpm 1.1.0 i386] [http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=231651&name=mumble-1.1.0-2.fc8.x86_64.rpm 1.1.0 x86_64]
 
 
 
Install them via double click.
 
===PCLinuxOS and other RPM based distros===
 
You can find a rpm package in the [http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1782689&forum_id=492606 forum]. Note that it is not officially supported, but it should work. You can install it with your rpm package manager or typing (as root):
 
 
 
rpm -i mumble-1.0.0-2.i386.rpm
 
 
 
===Gentoo===
 
Become root and do:
 
emerge -av mumble
 
That should do it. You will need Qt4 compiled with the dbus, sqlite and sqlite3 flags.
 
 
 
If Qt4 is missing the sqlite use flags, then re-install Qt4 with sqlite features:
 
echo x11-libs/qt dbus sqlite sqlite3 >> /etc/portage/package.use
 
emerge -av ">=x11-libs/qt-4.3"
 
 
 
Note that if the ebuild in the repository is a little outdated, you can find newer versions in the [http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1779400&forum_id=492606 forums].
 
 
 
If the forums are outdated too, you can always compile mumble from source. First install the dependencies manually:
 
emerge -av --oneshot ">=media-libs/speex-1" media-libs/alsa-lib dev-libs/boost x11-libs/libXevie app-accessibility/speech-dispatcher
 
Now stop being root and get and compile the mumble tarball as written in the section "Installing from source".
 
 
 
===ArchLinux===
 
A PKGBUILD is avalaible in the [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?do_Details=1&ID=10221&K=mumble AUR]. Download the tarball and then run:
 
tar xzfv mumble.tar.gz
 
cd mumble
 
makepkg
 
 
 
That should create a package for you. Of course, you need to install all the dependencies listed before. To do it in a single command:
 
 
 
pacman -S alsa-lib qt4 libxevie sqlite3 boost
 
 
 
Finally, install the package:
 
  
pacman -A mumble-1.0.0-1.pkg.tar.gz
+
Download and run the latest MSI installer (mumble-1.x.x.msi) from the [https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble/releases GitHub releases page]. The installer will guide you through installation and configuration of Mumble. This installer can also optionally install Murmur (Mumble server).
  
Of course, replace the package name as appropriate.
+
For Win2000 see [[Tips_Tricks#Installation_of_the_Mumble_client_on_Windows_2000|Tips Tricks]]
 
 
===Installing from source===
 
The most generic approach to install mumble under any linux is to install from source. Download the tarball and then run:
 
tar xzfv mumble-x.x.x.tar.gz      # (whereas the X are the version numbers of mumble)
 
cd mumble-x.x.x
 
Read the linux specific entries in the INSTALL file, since there you get to know about the pre-requisites needed for compilation. Be sure to have everything installed and in place for your linux distribution.
 
 
 
Then run:
 
qmake main.pro
 
make
 
 
 
After the compilation is finished, you will find the binaries in the directory "release". To run it there:
 
cd release
 
./mumble
 
  
 
==Mac OS X==
 
==Mac OS X==
Precompiled Mac OS X universal binaries are available from the [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=147372 SourceForge downloads page].
 
 
You can also build it from source yourself if you wish. See [[BuildingMacOsX]] for more information.
 
  
=Post-installation tips=
+
'''Precompiled Mac OS X universal binaries''' are available from the [https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble/releases GitHub releases page].  
==Common tips==
 
===Initializing/Resetting Murmur password===
 
Type:
 
murmur -supw <password>
 
That will change the password for SuperUser, a special user that has all rights.
 
If you want to reset the entire database, just delete murmur.sqlite and the recreate it with the command above.
 
  
==Windows==
+
Note that the official releases of Mumble 1.2.x are ''not currently compatible with Mac OS X 10.4'', but you can try the experimental snapshots found [http://www.scorpius-project.org/mumble-osx-10.4/ here] '''warning: use at your own risk; these have not been thoroughly tested, and may have bugs'''.
===Text-to-Speech===
 
The Text-To-Speech voices that ship by default with Windows are not all that good (and if you are not English, its even worse as it will try to speak english even when the text is not). If you have installed either MS Office or the Speech SDK, you will get more voices which can be configured from the Speech control panel. You can also buy a commercial Text-To-Speech engine; as long as it's SAPI5 compatible it can be used by Mumble. The main developers are currently using NeoSpeech Kate (buyable standalone from [http://www.nextup.com NextUp]).
 
  
===Creating a server connection shortcut===
+
In order to be able to use the '''[[Overlay]]''' it has to be installed separately. To install it launch Mumble, go into ''Mumbles settings'' into the Overlay section and you should see an ''option to install it''. The reason for the separate installation is that Mumble itself does not need administrative rights to install, but the overlay does.
You can right click on your desktop and choose "New" and pick "Shortcut" from the sub-menu.
 
In the box that says "Type the location of the item" put "mumble://username:password@servername/channel"
 
replacing the "username" with the name you log into the murmur server with (or omitting it and mumble will ask you for a user name), replacing "servername" with the DNS name or IP address of the murmur server.  "Channel" may be omitted if you want to connect to the root channel.  If a password is not specified mumble will request one from you when it attempts to connect. The bare minimum required for the shortcut would be "mumble://servername" with mumble requesting a username and a password upon attempting to connect to "servername".  This format would also be used to embed a link to your murmur server in a web page, perhaps in the members section of a clan home page.  
 
  
===It complains about mumble_ol.dll / Problems with Overlay===
+
==Linux==
If you are running XP you will need to update it to SP2. You also need to update to the latest DirectX9 version that can be downloaded from the [http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2DA43D38-DB71-4C1B-BC6A-9B6652CD92A3&displaylang=en Microsoft site]. The [http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b406cf67-d926-463b-99e8-27199d6626b5&DisplayLang=en June 2007 version] should be enough.
 
 
 
=== Murmur dies when I log out! How can I get Murmur to stay on all the time? ===
 
If you've noticed that the Murmur server dies when you log out of Windows, this is expected. If you want Murmur to run all the time, it'll need to be ran as a service. Fortunately, this is really easy to do! For the purposes of this write-up, the service we are creating is Murmur Demo. You may call it something else if you so choose.
 
  
Some references you'll see int his write-up:
+
For most Linux distributions, the client package name is ''mumble'' and the server package name is ''mumble-server'' or ''murmur''. For many Debian- and RPM-based distributions, there is ''mumble-server-web'', which is a turnkey installation of ICE for Murmur.
  
instsrv.exe - A program that adds services to the Windows registry.
+
On the popular Linux distributions, Mumble should be available in either third party repositories or the official repository. See the distribution sections below. It is also recommended, if you have a domain name, to use a trusted CA's certificate with your Mumble server, for example see [[Obtaining_a_Let's_Encrypt_Murmur_Certificate|this]] short guide about using Let's Encrypt.
  
srvany.exe - A program that allows any Windows application and some Windows 16-bit applications to run as a service.

==== Debian ====
 +
{{Warning
 +
|message=Note that with the ''mumble-server'' package on Debian or Debian-based distributions, you should not start the server manually. After you install and configure it, it will start on its own.
 +
}}
 +
Debian ''unstable'' has the latest release at all times in it's repository. Backports to current stable are done as soon as the package reaches ''testing'' (usually a week after release).
  
'''The HOW-TO'''
+
'''Mumble'''
 +
apt-get install mumble
 +
'''Murmur'''
 +
apt-get install mumble-server
 +
dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server
  
Step 1: Gain Administrator access on the machine running Murmur.
+
==== Ubuntu ====
  
Step 2: Download and install the following collection of tools from Microsoft to the default directory (C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits):
+
Ubuntu carries whatever Mumble version was current at the time of the release in the universe repository. We also maintain a [https://launchpad.net/~mumble/+archive/release PPA] ([https://launchpad.net/~mumble/+archive/release stable] and [https://launchpad.net/~mumble/+archive/snapshot dev snapshots]) that has the latest version for recent Ubuntu versions
  
  [http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en Windows 2003 Server Resource Kit].
+
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mumble/release
 +
sudo apt-get update
  
Step 3: Open a command console (Start >> Accessories >> Command Prompt).
+
To install the client you can use:
  
Step 4: If you have installed to the default directory, type the following:
+
sudo apt-get install mumble
  
"C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\instsrv.exe" "Murmur" "C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\srvany.exe"
+
to install and configure the server use:
  
Below is an example of what you should see:
+
sudo apt-get install mumble-server
 +
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/command.jpg
+
=== RHEL (and its derivatives, such as CentOS) ===
  
The result of this step is a new service in the Services console (Start >> Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services).
+
Please see the [[Install CentOS5]] page for both packaged and manual murmur installation instructions. Mumble is not easily built on this platform at this time, and there are no official packages (yet?).
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/service.jpg
+
For CentOS 6 see the [[Install CentOS6]] page.
  
'''Be sure to close the Services console before proceeding.'''
+
For CentOS 7 see the [[Install CentOS7]] page.
  
Step 5: Open the registry editor (Start >> Run and enter "regedit") and navigate to the following key:
+
=== Fedora ===
  
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Murmur Demo
+
Fedora 13-21, use yum:
 +
  yum install mumble
  
Regedit should look something like this:
+
There are additional packages available as <tt>mumble-*</tt>, such as <tt>mumble-overlay</tt> and <tt>mumble-server-web</tt>. Please consult your package manager for more information.
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/regedit.jpg
+
Fedora 22+, use dnf:
 +
  dnf install mumble
  
Step 6: Right click on the key name ("Murmur Demo") in the left panel of regedit, and from the menu that pops up, select New >> Key.
+
The additional packages are, mumble-overlay, mumble-plugins, murmur.
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/newkey.jpg
+
=== SUSE ===
  
Step 7: Name this new key "Parameters"
+
Mumble packages are available from [http://software.opensuse.org/package/mumble software.opensuse.org].
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/parameters.jpg
+
You can follow these steps while running openSUSE:
 +
# Open a web browser and go to [http://software.opensuse.org/package/mumble software.opensuse.org/package/mumble]
 +
# Assuming you're running 32bit, click on '''1-Click Install''' located at the first result
 +
# When asked to download a file, tell your browser you want to open the file
 +
# Once YaST is opened, click ''Next'' (leave defaults), then ''Next'' again, and again
 +
# Enter your root password if asked; Mumble will now download
 +
# Click '''Finish'''
 +
# To run Mumble:
 +
## Open the Kickoff application launcher and type '''mumble''', then --> '''Run mumble'''
 +
## Or: open a terminal and type '''mumble''' and press enter
  
Step 8: Right click on the key name ("Parameters") in the left panel of regedit, and from the menu that pops up, select New >> String value.
 
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/newstring.jpg
+
''Note: If you are asked to accept a certificate just press '''OK'''''
  
Step 9: Name this new String value "Application".
+
''Note: Latest mumble version can usually be found at [http://software.opensuse.org/package/mumble opensuse.org] under "Show other versions" either at "openSUSE Factory" or under "Show unstable packages" of your openSUSE version.''
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/application.jpg
+
Some packages can also be found in the [http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/lnussel:/mumble:/unstable/ Build Service].
  
Step 10: Right click on the String value ("Application) in the right panel of regedit, and from the menu that pops up, select Modify. Change the value from blank to the full path to your murmur.exe file.
+
=== Arch Linux ===
 +
To install Mumble, use pacman:
 +
pacman -S mumble
  
  http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/editapplication.jpg
+
For the Mumble Server Murmur:
 +
  pacman -S murmur
  
Repeat steps 8 through 10, making a second String value called "AppDirectory" and set its value to the full directory path of your murmur.exe file. When you're done making your registry changes, your edits should produce something like this:
+
There are also unstable packages  on the AUR:
 +
* Mumble Unstable (updated directly from Git): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mumble-git/
 +
* Murmur Unstable (updated directly from Git): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/murmur-git/
 +
* Murmur ICE (with ICE support): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/murmur-ice/
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/final.jpg
+
=== Mandriva/ROSA/Unity ===
  
Step 11: Close Regedit
+
Mumble is available since 2010.0.
  
Step 12: Open the Services console. Navigate to your service, and right click it and select Properties.
+
urpmi mumble
  
http://soapbox.sytes.net/Portals/soapbox/Mumble/panel.jpg
+
It's best to install the package from Cooker - it has many fixes.
  
Step 13: Make sure the Startup Type value is Automatic, and then press the Start button.
+
=== Others ===
  
At this point, the server should launch, although you probably won't see it. You can test to see if it's working by trying to connect to it using your client.
+
If all of the above options fail to work, you can always try [[BuildingLinux|compiling Mumble from source]], however installing a package is considered "best practice".
 
 
If your server did start, congratulations, you're done. You should be able to logoff and reboot the machine if you want, with Murmur pesisting through both.
 
 
 
If your server did not start, recheck your settings. Most problems are related to typos in configuration settings.
 
 
 
==Linux==
 
===Getting the Shortcuts to work===
 
There are two alternatives:
 
Either use native input or Xevie.
 
  
For native input make sure that the user running Mumble has read permissions on the /dev/input/eventX files of the input devices you want to use for shortcuts.
+
== Smartphones ==
Be aware that too weak permissions may be a security risk, because malicious processes may log all your input.
+
Mumble is currently being ported/reimplemented for various mobile phone platforms.
  
If Mumble can not read from any input device it falls back to Xevie.
+
=== Android ===
 +
Plumble is an unofficial client made by Morlunk. It is '''unmaintained'''.
  
You need to have Xevie enabled in your xorg.conf. To do this you will have to add the following line to xorg.conf, in the extensions section:
+
It has many features in addition to the Mumble's ones, such as: bluetooth headset support, proximity sensor utilizing "Voice Call" mode and hardware push-to-talk key support.
  
Option        "XEVIE" "Enable"
+
You can download it on [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.morlunk.mumbleclient.free Google Play] or [https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdid=com.morlunk.mumbleclient F-Droid].
  
That should like something like this:
+
=== iPhone ===
 +
The Mumble iOS client is available [https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mumble/id443472808?mt=8 on the App Store].
  
Section "Extensions"

You can find more information about the iOS client from the [https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble-iphoneos mumble-iphoneos GitHub repo]. Any help with the project is always appreciated.
    ...
 
    Option        "XEVIE" "Enable"
 
    ...
 
EndSection
 
  
Then restart the X server (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) and try again.

=== Maemo (Nokia) ===
 +
Maemo builds can be found [http://maemo.org/packages/view/mumble/ here]. These builds are unsupported, as they were not made by official Mumble developers. That does not, of course, mean you shouldn't use them; it just means there's no guarantee we can help you if you have a problem.
  
===Running murmur as a SysV service===

This page shows you directions on how to install and use Mumble (client) and Murmur (server). For complete usage information, see Mumbleguide, Murmurguide, and/or the respective subsections on the main page.

Getting and Installing Mumble and Murmur

Windows

Download and run the latest MSI installer (mumble-1.x.x.msi) from the GitHub releases page. The installer will guide you through installation and configuration of Mumble. This installer can also optionally install Murmur (Mumble server).

For Win2000 see Tips Tricks

Mac OS X

Precompiled Mac OS X universal binaries are available from the GitHub releases page.

Note that the official releases of Mumble 1.2.x are not currently compatible with Mac OS X 10.4, but you can try the experimental snapshots found here warning: use at your own risk; these have not been thoroughly tested, and may have bugs.

In order to be able to use the Overlay it has to be installed separately. To install it launch Mumble, go into Mumbles settings into the Overlay section and you should see an option to install it. The reason for the separate installation is that Mumble itself does not need administrative rights to install, but the overlay does.

Linux

For most Linux distributions, the client package name is mumble and the server package name is mumble-server or murmur. For many Debian- and RPM-based distributions, there is mumble-server-web, which is a turnkey installation of ICE for Murmur.

On the popular Linux distributions, Mumble should be available in either third party repositories or the official repository. See the distribution sections below. It is also recommended, if you have a domain name, to use a trusted CA's certificate with your Mumble server, for example see this short guide about using Let's Encrypt.

Debian

Warning: Note that with the mumble-server package on Debian or Debian-based distributions, you should not start the server manually. After you install and configure it, it will start on its own.

Debian unstable has the latest release at all times in it's repository. Backports to current stable are done as soon as the package reaches testing (usually a week after release).

Mumble

apt-get install mumble

Murmur

apt-get install mumble-server
dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server

Ubuntu

Ubuntu carries whatever Mumble version was current at the time of the release in the universe repository. We also maintain a PPA (stable and dev snapshots) that has the latest version for recent Ubuntu versions

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mumble/release
sudo apt-get update

To install the client you can use:

sudo apt-get install mumble

to install and configure the server use:

sudo apt-get install mumble-server
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server

RHEL (and its derivatives, such as CentOS)

Please see the Install CentOS5 page for both packaged and manual murmur installation instructions. Mumble is not easily built on this platform at this time, and there are no official packages (yet?).

For CentOS 6 see the Install CentOS6 page.

For CentOS 7 see the Install CentOS7 page.

Fedora

Fedora 13-21, use yum:

 yum install mumble

There are additional packages available as mumble-*, such as mumble-overlay and mumble-server-web. Please consult your package manager for more information.

Fedora 22+, use dnf:

 dnf install mumble

The additional packages are, mumble-overlay, mumble-plugins, murmur.

SUSE

Mumble packages are available from software.opensuse.org.

You can follow these steps while running openSUSE:

  1. Open a web browser and go to software.opensuse.org/package/mumble
  2. Assuming you're running 32bit, click on 1-Click Install located at the first result
  3. When asked to download a file, tell your browser you want to open the file
  4. Once YaST is opened, click Next (leave defaults), then Next again, and again
  5. Enter your root password if asked; Mumble will now download
  6. Click Finish
  7. To run Mumble:
    1. Open the Kickoff application launcher and type mumble, then --> Run mumble
    2. Or: open a terminal and type mumble and press enter


Note: If you are asked to accept a certificate just press OK

Note: Latest mumble version can usually be found at opensuse.org under "Show other versions" either at "openSUSE Factory" or under "Show unstable packages" of your openSUSE version.

Some packages can also be found in the Build Service.

Arch Linux

To install Mumble, use pacman:

pacman -S mumble

For the Mumble Server Murmur:

pacman -S murmur

There are also unstable packages on the AUR:

Mandriva/ROSA/Unity

Mumble is available since 2010.0.

urpmi mumble

It's best to install the package from Cooker - it has many fixes.

Others

If all of the above options fail to work, you can always try compiling Mumble from source, however installing a package is considered "best practice".

Smartphones

Mumble is currently being ported/reimplemented for various mobile phone platforms.

Android

Plumble is an unofficial client made by Morlunk. It is unmaintained.

It has many features in addition to the Mumble's ones, such as: bluetooth headset support, proximity sensor utilizing "Voice Call" mode and hardware push-to-talk key support.

You can download it on Google Play or F-Droid.

iPhone

The Mumble iOS client is available on the App Store.

You can find more information about the iOS client from the mumble-iphoneos GitHub repo. Any help with the project is always appreciated.

Maemo (Nokia)

Maemo builds can be found here. These builds are unsupported, as they were not made by official Mumble developers. That does not, of course, mean you shouldn't use them; it just means there's no guarantee we can help you if you have a problem.
