From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Mumble is a voice over IP (VOIP) application primarily designed for use by gamers, similar to programs such as TeamSpeak and Ventrilo.

This page goes over installation and configuration of both the client portion of the software (Mumble) and the server portion (Murmur).

Client

Installation

Install mumble from the Official Repositories.

Configuration

When you first launch the client, a configuration wizard will take you through the setup process. Settings can be changed later through the menu.

For a discussion of advanced settings, see the official documentation. The Mumbleguide is a good starting point.

Server

The Mumble project maintains a good guide for setting up the server here: Murmurguide. What follows is a quick-and-dirty, abridged version of that guide.

Installation

Install murmur from the Official Repositories.

The postinstall script will tell you to reload dbus and set the supervisor password. The default configuration doesn't use dbus, so you can ignore that if you want. Setting the supervisor password is recommended, however.

Configuration

Network

If you use a Firewall, you'll need to open TCP and UDP ports 64738. Depending on your network, you may also need to set a static IP, port forwarding, etc.

Config File

The default murmer config file is at /etc/murmur.ini and is heavily commented. Reading through all the comments is highly recommended.

Startup

Enable and then start murmur with systemctl enable murmur and systemctl start murmur. If all went smoothly, you should have a functioning murmur server.
