July 9, 2016

###Server Install for CentOS 7 Just copy these commands as root, or use sudo before them. yum install bzip2 useradd mumble su mumble mkdir ~/tmp && cd ~/tmp wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/mumble/files/Mumble/1.2.8/murmur-static_x86-1.2.8.tar.bz2 tar -vxjf ./murmur-static_x86-1.2.8.tar.bz2 rm murmur-static_x86-1.2.8.tar.bz2 cp -r ./murmur-static_x86-1.2.8/* . cd /home/mumble mkdir logs chmod 770 logs cp ./murmur-static_x86-1.2.8/murmur.ini /etc/murmur.ini vi /etc/murmur.ini Make sure to edit these values: logfile=/home/mumble/logs/murmur.log pidfile=/home/mumble/murmur.pid Now let's make sure mumble starts up on boot vi /etc/systemd/system/murmur.service Make sure it looks like this [Unit] Description=Mumble Server (Murmur) Requires=network-online.target After=network-online.target mariadb.service time-sync.target [Service] User=mumble Type=forking PIDFile=/home/mumble/murmur.pid ExecStart=/home/mumble/murmur.x86 -ini /etc/murmur.ini [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target Start mumble systemctl daemon-reload systemctl start murmur.service You'll need to define a super user password ./murmur.x86 -supw ROOTPASSWORD ####Adding a User Account to the Admin Group In Mumble the administrator account is known as the SuperUser. It is recommended that the SuperUser account is only used to configure the initial Administrator account on your Mumble server and is left with a secure password. - Right click the Root channel at the top and select edit. The Root channel is where your server properties are stored and any channel below this channel will inherit the account policies unless explicitly excluded. - Click on the Groups tab at the top. Select the 'admin' group from the Group dropdown box. Select or Type the username you wish to add to the 'Admin' group in the dropdown box below the Members box. Then click the Add button to the right. - Click the OK button on the bottom right. If the SuperUser password was incorrect a password box will be displayed when you attempt to connect to the server. #### Downloading the Client Download the "Stable Release" here: http://wiki.mumble.info/wiki/Main_Page Open up the installer when downloaded and follow the normal steps. On first launch mumble will start up the audio wizard. Make sure the correct audio devices are selected. If using a laptop the default devices are the built in ones, if using a desktop make sure to select the correct ones. Un-tick the positional audio and attenuate other applications boxes. Click next. Device tuning, slide it all the way left, if the recording sounds fine then press next. If you get a jitter, move the slider right till it sounds fine. The next steps tests your microphone, just follow the steps. Quality settings, select high. Click next and finish.
