    started a topic Am i the only one interested in mumble....

    Am i the only one interested in mumble....

    One of the standard applications for in-game voice communication seems to be ventrilo http://www.ventrilo.com/ (at least for the cs:s masses). Despite a promise of a linux client, Flagship Industries will not be delivering any time soon (see http://www.petitiononline.com/vent4Lin/petition.html for more info).

    Personally, I think the linux client is a lost cause (most people are making do with wine + ventrilo http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iAppId=2169) or the teamspeak linux client. Both of these are proprietary binaries though...

    insert Mumble here http://mumble.sourceforge.net/

    Mumble has been progressing reasonably well of late http://mumble.svn.sourceforge.net/vi...y=rev&view=log (although not at the breakneck speed of PTS). Overlays work with most games, positional sound support has been implemented for battlefield 2 and WoW, it offers cross platform support and it is licensed under GPL...

    Hardy seems to have picked up Mumble in its repositories too - Main and PPA (coinciding with Ubuntu defaulting to Pulse Audio). Perhaps it's time open source developers started integrating positional voice chat through mumble... openarena, nexuiz and warsow spring to my mind. I'm not sure how simple/difficult this integration would be but it would be the best way to further mumble development/adoption/awareness.

    A brief overview of Mumble on Phoronix would help too

    Has anyone else been thinking along these lines?

But I've been able to do everything I've needed to from there. Hope this helps
    OK, I've tried it but can't figure out how. How do I create user accounts and their passwords?

    Not sure I understand the question. Mumble is not Ventrilo... If you want to connect to a Ventrilo server using Mumble, that's not possible.

    Thanks, I'll give another try. Anything to retire the aging Ventrilo 2.1 :P

    No, you don't have to do all that, and a simple config file DOES suffice. I've been running my murmur server for games with my friends for over 6 months now and it's incredibly easy to set up. It's good to have a simple step-by-step guide for people just to run a server if some people don't know how anyway. Just run these in the command line, no need for root privileges (in fact you certainly should not run from root):

    wget http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/source...1.1.8.tar.lzma //or closer mirror, find it on sourceforge page
    lzma -dv murmur-static_x86-1.1.8.tar.lzma
    tar -xvf murmur-static_x86-1.1.8.tar
    cd murmur-static_x86-1.1.8/
    vim murmur.ini //edit config file to your liking, I like vim but nano is easier if you're not familiar with it
    ./murmur.x86 -readsupw //enter admin password
    ./murmur.x86

    You can now log in using nick SuperUser and your admin password to change settings, add channels and kick/ban people etc.

    Plus, for the last 3-4 versions, each version of mumble has started with crashing alsa for me. Half of the time I needed to upgrade my alsa libs (yet no other app had no issues with it), and the other half was the blame of mumble.
