    So you want to install mumble client on your computer? Well you will need to have and know a few things first.

    Requirements:

    • What your OS is? (Windows, Ubuntu, Mac, Debian, etc.)
    • You have speakers, or a headset so that you can hear what is being said.
    • You have a mic. (optional, but if you want to talk you will need it)
    First lets get mumble:

    Window:
    1. If you have a Microsoft Windows based machine you should head over to the official mumble download site: http://mumble.sourceforge.net/
    2. The page should look like the below.

    3. In the center of the page their is "Get Mumble". You should select the stable windows version which is the first one in the list.
    4. After clicking the link Mumble will be downloaded to your computer shortly.
    5. After the download has finished, find the file and execute it by double clicking it.
    6. A prompt will come up asking if you wish to run this program, you should click run, and follow through the setup. You shouldn't need to change any options yet.
    7. Once the install is finished, go to "start > All Programs > Mumble > Mumble" and launch the application.
    8. Once this is finished, continue to the next step "Configuring Mumble". If you were lost somewhere in this guide, please start back at step 1. and repeat.
    Ubuntu / Debian / Linux Mint:
    1. Launch your Program installer and search mumble. Once you have found "Mumble" click install. -or- launch a terminal session and run 'sudo apt-get update && apt-get install mumble -y'
    2. After this is finished, go to "Configuring Mumble", if something has gone wrong during this install go back to step one and try a different option, and or try and repeat the step.
    Mac:
    1. If you have a Mac based machine you should head over to the official mumble download site: http://mumble.sourceforge.net/
    2. The page should look like the below.

    6. A prompt will come up asking if you wish to run this program, you should click run, and follow through the setup. You shouldn't need to change any options yet.
    7. Once the install is finished, go to your application folder and launch Mumble.
    8. Once this is finished, continue to the next step "Configuring Mumble". If you were lost somewhere in this guide, please start back at step 1. and repeat.
    Configuring Mumble:
    1. After launching Mumble an "Audio Tuning Wizard" should appear, the first screen should look like the below, you should simply need to click next identified by the green arrow.

      step_1.png

    2. In this step you will determine the devices used to communicate with Mumble. You should probably leave the defaults unless you know which options to select otherwise. The screen should look like the below, and all you should have to do is select next at the bottom of the screen. (Warning, expect to hear your mic coming through your speakers in the next option; you may first want to turn down your volume.)

      step_2.png

    3. I usually leave this at the default, but you can change if you like. Click next.

      step_3.png
    4. This is a key step as it will determine how much audio is thrown through your computer to other users, so if you have an annoying fan it is better to turn up the slider so that when you are not talking that it never reaches the green area. After you have finished click next.

      step_4.png
    5. This step is where you select how audio will be transmitted to other users and when. I highly suggest push to talk, as such select the "Push To Talk:" button then select the white space with your mouse and then select which key you would to use for push to talk. Then select next.

      step_5.png

    6. Select "Diable Text-To-Speach and use sounds instead." Most people find the mumble lady annoying, but you can turn her on later. After this click next.

      step_6.png
    7. If you have a headset select "Use headphones" option and click next, otherwise just click next.

      step_7.png

    8. This option is up to you. If you are heavily security conscious I suggest that you uncheck this box and select "Finish", otherwise just select "Finish".

      step_9.png
    9. Move onto the next step of "Certificate Management".

    Certificate Management:

    This section will create a certificate which will be considered the identification so that people can confirm "You" = "You" and not "You" = "Some Random Person". This section is very important, but for the ease of use I suggest just using "Automatic Certificate Creation" and clicking "Next". If you are heavily security conscious click the "Create a trusted certificate" and follow the guide.

    step_10.png

    After this click "Finish" and move on to "Adding Your Server".

    Adding Your Server:

    1. Mumble Should Automatically launch if you have just finished the previous steps of this guide, if however you already have Mumble setup launch Mumble and click "Server" and then "connect so that below window appears.

      step_11.png
    2. Now select "Add New..." and the below window should appear.

      step_12.png

    3. Fill out the label section with what you wish to call this server. i.e "My Guild". Next get the Mumble server address and put this in the "Address" field. If you do not know this information check with your guild or provider of the server. Change the "Port" field to what is specified by the guild or provider. Finally select the Username that you wish to use on this server. After which you should select "OK".

    4. The window should go back to the same screen seen in step 2. At this point a new section called "Favorites" should appear with your server listed underneath it. Select this server and click connect and you are now on your way to using Mumble.
