Download mumble for Mac or Windows: https://www.mumble.com/mumble-download.php To install mumble on Linux, use your package manager: apt, dnf or yum, or Software Center.
The mumble chat server to connect to is http://next.buf.org/. You create your own user name. You might get a message that says "invalid user name": this is a silly glitch. Just try reconnecting with that same user name and you'll prolly connect.
- Your username name must not have spaces, it can have characters [A-Za-z0-9_-]
- The server password is LetsChatAndSing
