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
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.
(for Win2000 see Tips_Tricks)
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.
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 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
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 that has the latest version for recent Ubuntu versions
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:slicer sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mumble
sudo apt-get install mumble-server sudo dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server
Uptodate packages can be found in the Build Service.
There are two Mumble packages in AUR:
- Stable release: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=10221
- Unstable (updated directly from Git): http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=26865
Murmur can be found here: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=19928
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.
Mumble is currently being ported/reimplemented for various mobile phone platforms.
One of our core developers is currently working on reimplementing a Mumble client for the Android OS. You can follow the efforts in the Mumble Android Git repository. Binary version for testing are also available there.
There is currently an iPhone version of Mumble in the works; you can see more information about it from the Git repository. Any help with the project is always appreciated.
