Login as SuperUser on Murmur / Mumble-server on Debian

I’m trying out Murmur / Mumble-server at the moment for conference calls and meetings for FSFE campaigns. The service is great, and audio quality top-notch. Installation and configuration was generally very simple.

In order to have private conversations however (where uninvited users cannot participate), you must first log in as the pre-configured admin user, called ‘SuperUser’. Achieving that was rather confusing on Debian, so for future reference, here’s how to do it.

  1. Set the SuperUser password via the Murmur server CLI:

    sudo /usr/sbin/murmurd -ini /etc/mumble-server.ini -supw <password>

    You must run the command as root, and you must specify the .ini file. Do not use murmur-user-wrapper, which Debian provides.

  2. Connect to the Murmur server using the Mumble desktop client, specifying username SuperUser, and the password that you set above.

Good luck!
