Getting and Installing Mumble

This page shows you directions on how to install Mumble (client) as well as Murmur (server).


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.

Mac OS X

Precompiled Mac OS X universal binaries are available from the SourceForge downloads page.


For most Linux distributions,

The client package name is mumble.

The server package name is murmur.

However, for Debian distributions,

The server package name is mumble-server.

If you do not find an appropriate server package for your distribution, the static build will usually work. Static builds start with "murmur-static_x86." If you cannot find an appropriate client package, try compiling it.


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).

To configure the server, just 'dpkg -reconfigure mumble-server'.


Note that you should use the PulseAudio sound system for Mumble if you are running Ubuntu.

Ubuntu carries whatever Mumble version was current at the time of the release in the universe repository. Backports of current releases can be found in the PPA. If you do not have the current version of Mumble available in your repositories, add the PPA.

If you are going to use the PPA, click the above link, select "Technical Details" and copy the two repositories to /etc/apt/sources.list, then add the signing key. Note that you must have the Universe repository enabled so that Mumble can install the needed dependencies.


Uptodate packages can be found in the Build Service.

Arch Linux

There are two Mumble packages in AUR:

Murmur (the server) can also be found here:
