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


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.


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.

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 its repository. Backports to current stable are done as soon as the package reaches testing (usually a week after release).


apt-get install mumble


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


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 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.


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:


Mumble is available since 2010.0.

urpmi mumble

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


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".



To install Mumble:

pkg install mumble

To install Murmur:

pkg install murmur

To enable Murmur:

sysrc murmur_enable="YES"


To install Mumble:

pkg_add mumble


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


Mumla is an unofficial client, forked by Quite in 2020 from Morlunk's unmaintained Plumble.

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 Mumla on F-Droid.

An old and unmaintained version of Plumble it on Google Play.


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.
