'''Mumble:'''<br> 
 +
Download the latest stable version of Mumble from the [https://www.mumble.info/downloads/ Official Website].<br> 
 +
The installer will guide you through the installation and configuration of Mumble.  
  
Also, you can build Mumble yourself from source as described in [[BuildingWindows]].
+
Alternatively you can download and run the latest MSI installer (mumble-1.x.x.msi; "winx64" for the 64-bit version) from the [https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble/releases GitHub releases page].<br>   
 +
''Note:'' Releases that include the term "RC" are '''R'''elease''' C'''andidates and therefore Test Versions.
  
==Linux==
+
'''Mumble-Server (aka Murmur):'''<br> 
Some Linux distributions already have mumble packaged so that an easy installation is possible. Check your package manager of your distribution for mumble. But sometimes those packages are not up to date. So if you want more in-depth information about installing mumble for Linux read up on [[BuildingLinux]]. Installation from source (svn and tarball) is  described there.

''Note:'' Releases that include the term "RC" are '''R'''elease''' C'''andidates and therefore Test Versions.
  
Debian Testing (lenny) includes the latest official Mumble packages, and is the officially maintained version. New packaging efforts are encouraged to base their file layout and usernames on what is used here, to make third-party packages easier to port. To install:

In order to be able to use the '''[[Overlay]]''' it has to be installed separately. <br>
 +
To install it: launch Mumble, go into ''Mumble's settings'' -> Overlay section and you should see an ''option to install it''.<br>
 +
The reason for the separate installation is that Mumble itself does not need administrative rights to install, but the overlay does.
  
sudo aptitude install mumble
+
'''Mumble-Server (aka Murmur):'''<br>
''(for the client)''
+
You can download a static version of the Mumble-Server from the [https://www.mumble.info/downloads/ Official Website].<br>
sudo aptitude install mumble-server mumble-server-web
 
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server

If no package is available, take a look at the [[Installing Mumble#Snap_Package_.28for_various_Distributions.29|Snap]]- and [[Installing_Mumble#Flatpak_Package_.28for_various_Distributions.29|Flatpak]]-packages below (which will run on various distributions) or you can try to compile Mumble, see Section: [[Installing_Mumble#Building_Mumble|Building-Mumble]].
  
v1.1.4-x86 Mumble for Debian Stable ('Etch', 4.0r5) is available at http://Vocis.K1T.NET/
+
==== Debian ====
  
=== Ubuntu ===
+
To install Mumble from the Debian Repository, run:
  
==== Official Repository ====
+
apt-get install mumble
  
'''This is the easy way, but you won't always get the latest version.'''
+
For the Mumble-Server, run:
 +
apt-get install mumble-server
  
Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04) includes the Mumble 1.1.x series in it's official repository. It's cloned from Debian testing before every Ubuntu release, so while it will lag slightly behind, it won't be by much. Just follow the directions for installing under Debian.
+
{{Notice
 +
|message=The ''mumble-server''-Package on Debian and Debian-based distributions (i.a. Ubuntu) will start automatically on system-start.<br>
 +
You can disable the autostart with systemd.
 +
You find details in the file "README.Debian".
 +
}}
  
==== PPA Repository ====
+
==== Ubuntu ====
  
'''This is a bit more to type, but should always be up-to-date.'''
+
The Ubuntu Repositories include a Mumble version from the time when the Ubuntu Version was released, thus it might be outdated. <br>
 +
We also maintain a [https://launchpad.net/~mumble/+archive/release PPA] ([https://launchpad.net/~mumble/+archive/release stable]) with
 +
the recent versions of Mumble.<br>
 +
If you want to try the latest development version, you can use the: ([https://launchpad.net/~mumble/+archive/snapshot dev snapshots])
  
As the packages in the official Ubuntu repository aren't always up-to-date, you can add an external PPA repository to your package manager. It should always include the newest stable version of Mumble and Murmur for i386 and amd64 architectures.
+
To add the PPA use:
  
You will have to manually add the repositories for the PPA repository. Go to a command prompt and type
+
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mumble/release
  sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
+
  sudo apt-get update
then add the following two lines to the bottom of the file
 
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/slicer/ubuntu hardy main
 
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/slicer/ubuntu hardy main
 
  sudo aptitude update  
 
(replace ''hardy'' with ''gutsy'' or ''intrepid'' if you are on those distributions)
 
  
Afterwards you can use the same command as for installing under Debian (see above).
+
To install the client you can use:
  
More information about the PPA repository can be found at [https://edge.launchpad.net/~slicer/+archive Launchpad]
+
sudo apt-get install mumble
  
===Fedora===
+
to install and configure the server use:
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]
 
  
===PCLinuxOS and other RPM based distros===
+
sudo apt-get install mumble-server
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):
+
sudo dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server
  
rpm -i mumble-1.0.0-2.i386.rpm
+
{{Notice
 +
|message=The ''mumble-server''-Package in Ubuntu will start automatically on system-start.<br>
 +
You can disable the autostart with systemd.
 +
You find details in the file "README.Debian".
 +
}}
  
===Gentoo===
+
=== RHEL (and its derivatives, such as CentOS) ===
Depending on what other features you want compiled into it, check up on the possible USE-flags: http://www.gentoo-portage.com/media-sound/mumble/USE#ptabs
 
For most users it's useful to use the USE-flags alsa, dbus and speech - so we go with it.
 
It's well possible that the Mumble ebuild is "masked". Here, we make sure it will install anyways.
 
Become root and do:
 
echo media-sound/mumble alsa dbus speech >> /etc/portage/package.use
 
echo media-sound/mumble ~x86 >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
 
emerge -av mumble
 
That should do the magic. If something fails though, check up on [[BuildingLinux]]
 
  
===ArchLinux===
+
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?).
A  stable 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:
+
For CentOS 6 see the [[Install CentOS6]] page.
  
pacman -S alsa-lib qt4 libxevie sqlite3 boost
+
For CentOS 7 see the [[Install CentOS7]] page.
  
Finally, install the package:
+
=== Fedora ===
  
pacman -A mumble-1.0.0-1.pkg.tar.gz
+
Install from Fedora Repositories:
  
Of course, replace the package name as appropriate.
+
To install mumble, run:
 +
  dnf install mumble
  
If you want to test a SVN Snapshoth, use this [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23369 PKGBUILD] in the [http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23369 AUR]. Use [http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Yaourt Yaourt] or the instructions above.
+
For the Mumble-Server, run:
 +
  dnf install murmur
  
==Mac OS X==
+
There are additional packages available for the [[Overlay]] and Plugins:
 +
* mumble-overlay
 +
* mumble-plugins
  
Precompiled Mac OS X universal binaries are available from the [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=147372 SourceForge downloads page].
+
=== SUSE ===
  
You can also build it from source yourself if you wish. See [[BuildingMacOsX]] for more information.
+
Mumble packages are available from [http://software.opensuse.org/package/mumble software.opensuse.org].
  
==Snapshots==
+
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
  
If you want to get the latest snapshots for Mumble and Murmur, you can find those [http://mumble.info/snapshot/ here]. These include the latest builds of Mumble and Murmur for Windows, and static builds of Murmur for Linux.
 
  
=Post-installation tips=
+
''Note: If you are asked to accept a certificate just press '''OK'''''
==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: 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.''
===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===
+
Some packages can also be found in the [http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/lnussel:/mumble:/unstable/ Build Service].
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===
+
=== Arch Linux ===
If you are running XP you will need to update it to SP2.
+
To install Mumble from the Arch Repositories, run:
 +
pacman -S mumble
  
=== Murmur dies when I log out! How can I get Murmur to stay on all the time? ===
+
For the Mumble Server (aka Murmur):
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.
+
pacman -S murmur
  
Some references you'll see int his write-up:
+
There are also unstable packages available in the [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository AUR]:
 +
* Mumble Unstable (updated directly from Git): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mumble-git/
 +
* Mumble-Server Unstable (updated directly from Git): https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/murmur-git/
  
instsrv.exe - A program that adds services to the Windows registry.
+
=== Mandriva/ROSA/Unity ===
  
srvany.exe - A program that allows any Windows application and some Windows 16-bit applications to run as a service.
+
Mumble is available since 2010.0.
  
'''The HOW-TO'''
+
urpmi mumble
  
Step 1: Gain Administrator access on the machine running Murmur.
+
It's best to install the package from Cooker - it has many fixes.
  
Step 2: Download and install the following collection of tools from Microsoft to the default directory (C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits):
+
=== Snap Package (for various Distributions) ===
  
[http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en Windows 2003 Server Resource Kit].
+
An Snap Package is available: https://snapcraft.io/mumble<br>
  
Step 3: Open a command console (Start >> Accessories >> Command Prompt).
+
It is maintained by a third-party: the Snapcrafters.
  
Step 4: If you have installed to the default directory, type the following:
+
=== Flatpak Package (for various Distributions) ===
  
"C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\instsrv.exe" "Murmur" "C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\srvany.exe"
+
A Flatpak Package is available: https://www.flathub.org/apps/details/info.mumble.Mumble
  
The result of this step is a new service in the Services console (Start >> Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services).
+
=== Building Mumble ===
  
'''Be sure to close the Services console before proceeding.'''
+
If all of the above options fail to work, you can always try to [[BuildingLinux|compile Mumble from source]], however installing a package is considered "best practice".
  
Step 5: Open the registry editor (Start >> Run and enter "regedit") and navigate to the following key:
+
== BSD ==
 +
=== FreeBSD ===
 +
To install Mumble:
  
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Murmur Demo
+
  pkg install mumble
  
 +
To install Murmur:
  
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.
+
pkg install murmur
  
Step 7: Name this new key "Parameters"
+
To enable Murmur:
  
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.
+
sysrc murmur_enable="YES"
  
Step 9: Name this new String value "Application".
+
=== OpenBSD ===
 +
To install Mumble:
  
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.
+
pkg_add mumble
  
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.
+
To install the Mumble-Server (Murmur):
  
Step 11: Close Regedit
+
pkg_add murmur
  
Step 12: Open the Services console. Navigate to your service, and right click it and select Properties.
+
To enable Mumble-Server:
  
Step 13: Make sure the Startup Type value is Automatic, and then press the Start button.
+
rcctl enable murmurd
  
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.
+
{{Notice|message=The murmur package became available with the release of OpenBSD 6.7 and doesn't exist in OpenBSD 6.6 and previous releases.}}
  
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.
+
== Smartphones ==
  
If your server did not start, recheck your settings. Most problems are related to typos in configuration settings.
+
=== Android ===
 
+
[[Mumla]] is an unofficial client (by Quite), it's the successor of deprecated Plumble.
==Linux==
 
===Getting the Shortcuts Suppression to work===
 
  
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 Mumla on [https://f-droid.org/packages/se.lublin.mumla/ F-Droid] and on the [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=se.lublin.mumla Google Playstore].
  
That should like something like this:
+
=== iPhone ===
 +
{{Notice|message=The iOS client is outdated!}}
  
Section "Extensions"
+
The Mumble iOS client is available [https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mumble/id443472808?mt=8 on the App Store].
    ...
 
    Option        "XEVIE" "Enable"
 
    ...
 
EndSection
 
  
Then restart the X server (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) and try again.
+
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.
