==Windows==
 
==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]].
+
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).

==Mac OS X==
 +
 
 +
'''Precompiled Mac OS X universal binaries''' are available from the [https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble/releases 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 [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'''.
 +
 
 +
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.

If you want to compile your own version of Mumble, you can read some help in [[Building_from_Source]].
 
  
===Ubuntu ===

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.
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. '''Warning:''' the package is Ubuntu only as it depends on specific ubuntu versions of libraries. If you are not sure how to do this, just head to a console and type the following as root:

 +
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.

==== 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).
 +
 
 +

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 [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
 +
 
 +
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 <tt>mumble-*</tt>, such as <tt>mumble-overlay</tt> and <tt>mumble-server-web</tt>. 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 [http://software.opensuse.org/package/mumble software.opensuse.org].
 +
 
 +
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
  
dpkg --install mumble_1.0.0_i386.deb
 
  
Of course, change the version number as appropriate.
+
''Note: If you are asked to accept a certificate just press '''OK'''''
You can also try using the [http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/ Treviño repository]. Just add it to your repository list, update the package list and install Mumble.
 
  
===Fedora===
+
''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.''
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]
 
Install them via double click.
 
  
===PCLinuxOS and other RPM based distros===
+
Some packages can also be found in the [http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/lnussel:/mumble:/unstable/ Build Service].
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
+
=== Arch Linux ===
 +
To install Mumble, use pacman:
 +
  pacman -S mumble
  
===Gentoo===
+
For the Mumble Server Murmur:
  emerge mumble
+
  pacman -S murmur
That should do it. You will need Qt4 compiled with the sqlite and sqlite3 flags. Note that 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].
 
  
===ArchLinux===
+
There are also unstable packages  on the AUR:
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:
+
* Mumble Unstable (updated directly from Git): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mumble-git/
tar xfv mumble.tar.gz
+
* Murmur Unstable (updated directly from Git): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/murmur-git/
cd mumble
+
* Murmur ICE (with ICE support): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/murmur-ice/
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:
+
=== Mandriva/ROSA/Unity ===
  
pacman -S alsa-lib qt4 libxevie sqlite3 boost
+
Mumble is available since 2010.0.
  
Finally, install the package:
+
urpmi mumble
  
pacman -A mumble-1.0.0-1.pkg.tar.gz
+
It's best to install the package from Cooker - it has many fixes.
  
Of course, replace the package name as appropriate.
+
=== Others ===
  
=Post-installation tips=
+
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".
==Common tips==
 
===Initializing/Resetting Murmur password===
 
Type:
 
murmur -supw <password>
 
That will change the password for SuperUser, a special user that have all rights.
 
If you want to reset the entire database, just delete murmur.sqlite and the recreate it with the command above.

===Text-to-Speech===
+
Mumble is currently being ported/reimplemented for various mobile phone platforms.
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]).
 
  
===It complains about mumble_ol.dll / Problems with Overlay===

=== Android ===
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].

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.

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 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.
