New Mumble Server For DLN Community

Game nights, network with friends, bring the global audience together. Enjoy the new Mumble DLN community server.

Install Mumble

  • Mumble is included in most distro repositories though some of those repos will have 1.2.x rather than the latest version of 1.3.x. 1.3.x is the recommended version to use if possible. Mumble is also available as a Snap and a Flatpak.

Examples:
[Arch] $ pacman -S mumble
[Debian] $ apt install mumble
[openSUSE] $ zypper install mumble
[Fedora] $ dnf install mumble
[Snap] $ snap install mumble
[Flatpak] $ flatpak install flathub info.mumble.Mumble

Audio Wizard

  1. Audio Wizard Introduction is a simple intro page that you just click “Next” on.
  2. Device Selection: choose your preferred Input and Output device for use with Mumble. This is specific to your personal setup but a headset is preferred.
  • “Attenuate applications while others talk” is a feature that will lower the volume of other applications while others are talking, by default it is selected but you can disable this if it does not appeal to you.
  1. Device Tuning is to allow you to improve hardware performance if needed, it usually isn’t needed.
  2. Volume Tuning is a tool to fine tune the amount of sound needed for your microphone to send data to Mumble. This is specific to each user so just follow the directions on the wizard.
  3. Voice Activity Detection: change this setting to “Push to Talk” and choose your preferred P2T Key from the “Shortcuts” section.
  4. Quality & Notifications
  • Quality Settings can just be left as default as this setting works quite well for most people.
  • Notification Settings: Text-To-Speech feature will read messages from the channel such as Comments, Users Joining, Users Leaving, etc. This feature is on by default but I find it very annoying so I turn it off immediately.
  1. Positional Audio: check the “Use headphones” option.
  2. Sending usage information is solely your preference.
