Introduction

This page shows you directions on how to install and use Mumble (client) and Murmur (server). For usage information, see here.

Getting and Installing Mumble and Murmur

Windows

Just head to SourceForge downloads page, get the Windows executable and run it. Follow the installer instructions and you are done. The installer includes both the client and the server.

Mac OS X

Precompiled Mac OS X universal binaries are available from the SourceForge downloads 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.

Linux

For most Linux distributions, the client package name is mumble and the server package name is mumble-server or murmur.

On the popular Linux distributions, Mumble should be available in either third party repositories, or the official repository. See the distribution sections below.

Debian

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

apt-get install mumble

or

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 that has the latest version for recent Ubuntu versions

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:slicer
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install mumble

or

sudo aptitude install mumble-server
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server

SUSE

Uptodate packages can be found in the Build Service.

Arch Linux

There are two Mumble packages in AUR:

Murmur can be found here: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=19928

Others

If you do not find an appropriate Mumble package for your distribution, there are now experimental static Mumble builds available from here (64 and 32 bit compatible). Do NOT use these unless you are sure that the Mumble is not available in your own package manager or third-party repositories -- use these builds at your own risk; they have not been thoroughly tested yet.

If all of the above options fail to work, you can always try compiling Mumble from source.
