- 2 Post-installation tips
Getting and Installing Mumble
Just head to 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.
If you want to compile your own version of Mumble, you can read some help in Building_from_Source.
You can download the .deb package avalaible at 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:
dpkg --install mumble_1.0.0_i386.deb
Of course, change the version number as appropriate. You can also try using the Treviño repository. Just add it to your repository list, update the package list and install Mumble.
Install them via double click.
PCLinuxOS and other RPM based distros
You can find a rpm package in the 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
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 Note that the ebuild in the repository is a little outdated, you can find newer versions in the forums.
A PKGBUILD is avalaible in the AUR. Download the tarball and then run:
tar xfv 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:
pacman -S alsa-lib qt4 libxevie sqlite3 boost
Finally, install the package:
pacman -A mumble-1.0.0-1.pkg.tar.gz
Of course, replace the package name as appropriate.
Initializing/Resetting Murmur password
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.
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 NextUp).
Creating a server connection shortcut
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
Getting the Shortcuts to work
You need to enable Xevie in your xorg.conf. To do this you will have to add the following line to xorg.conf, in the extensions section:
Option "XEVIE" "Enable"
That should like something like this:
Section "Extensions" ... Option "XEVIE" "Enable" ... EndSection
Then restart the X server (Ctrol+Alt+Backspace) and try again.
Running murmur as a SysV service
You can use Murmur_Init_Script.
