How To Install Mumble on Ubuntu 15.04

Install Mumble on Ubuntu 15.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install and configure Mumble on Ubuntu 15.04. For those of you who didn’t know, Mumble is an open-source VoIP technology that supports person-to-person and person-to-group voice communications between registered clients, such as Android-based mobile devices connected to the same network. The application is great for talking and gaming with low latency.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Mumble on the Ubuntu 15.04 server.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 15.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Mumble on Ubuntu 15.04

Step 1. First, make sure that all your system packages are up-to-date by running the following apt-get commands in the terminal.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Step 2. Installing Mumble.

Mumble is available in the software repositories of each of the major Linux distributions. This makes Mumble very easy to install and setup:

apt-get install mumble-server

Then install Mumble client:

apt-get install mumble

Once the server is installed you will need to setup Mumble by running the following command:

dpkg-reconfigure mumble-server

You will be now asked if you want the mumble-server to be started automatically when the servers start. Pick “Yes”. The following questions will pop up, asking if you wish to run Mumble in a high-priority mode to ensure lower latency.

Step 3. Advanced Config for Mumble.

To configure, open up /etc/mumble-server.ini via nano text editor:

nano /etc/mumble-server.ini

Now, we can restart the Mumble server so that the changes take place:

service mumble-server restart
