'''Mumble''' is a free, open source, high quality, and low latency voice chat software. Primarily intended for gaming, it is also commonly used for recording podcasts and collaborating on software development (among others).
== Installation ==
Downloads for various operating systems can be found on the [ Mumble website]. For most Linux distributions, you can also just use your package manager: <code>sudo pacman -S mumble</code> for Arch, <code>sudo apt install mumble</code> for Debian, and so on. I've had numerous issues with [ Plumble] on Android but I also know other people that are using it without any hitches ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The best experience is on desktop.
== Usage ==
Launch the application then '''go through the Audio Wizard'''. It will help you identify most issues and get them resolved before connecting to the server. Once that's finished, a dialogue should pop up prompting you to do just that. Click <kbd>Add New...</kbd>, enter <code></code> as the address, leave the port as default, enter the username you'd like to use, then give the server a friendly name with the <kbd>Label</kbd> box. You'll be able to quickly connect to the server again by clicking it as an option under <code>Favourite</code>.
=Administering =Mumble has a very odd way of granting different permissions to different users. This is done via the Access Control List (ACL).  The screenshot below shows the default permissions for ''all'': everyone who joins the channel. There's also ''admin'', ''auth'', and whatever custom groups you create. The latter is where you add admins and mods.[[File:ACL_-_all.png]] Click <code>Add</code> then fill the <code>Group</code> box in with some random (or predetermined) string such as <code>shoh5quei4moeTh7daigoh9ah</code>. Enter this in the box like <code>#shoh5quei4moeTh7daigoh9ah</code>. Set the permissions you want them to have (<code>Write ACL</code> means they have full admin) then send the original string to the people you want administering or moderating. They'll need to put this in their Access Tokens which can be found in <code>Server</code> -> <code>Access Tokens</code>. I also recommend having them register and go through the certificate wizard; this will ensure their username can't be taken by anyone else. If you have <code>Write ACL</code> permissions in a specific channel, you can then create subchannels within and build a hierarchy for different purposes. "Admins" typically have this permission but may be slightly restricted according what the parent channel's owner decide. ''Personally'', I create a subchannel for some purpose and give the person requesting the channel the <code>Write ACL</code> permission so they can do what they will with it from then on; its their space to use as they see fit. = Troubleshooting ==If you're having issues, [ let me know], we'll get it resolved, and I'll add the problem/solution here.
