Installing mumbles from the deb package
**Note: I have only had a chance to test the deb package using Ubuntu Feisty. While it should work with other versions of Ubuntu (from Edgy) and Debian, the package is untested on those systems. Your mileage may vary. If you do try the deb package on other systems please let me know how it went.
Install mumbles using your package installer.
And run by:
Installing mumbles from source
Unzip the mumbles tarball to a local directory.
And run by:
mumbles comes with a command-line script to send notifications called ‘mumbles-send’. To test your mumbles installation, run from a terminal:
If you have installed mumbles from the source tarball, make sure you run ‘mumbles-send’ from the src/ directory.
Before you install mumbles you should check that you have the following packages installed for your distribution:
- Python 2.4
- PyGTK 2.8
- Python Glade
- Python Cairo
- Python DBus
- Python Setuptools
Information for checking out from svn and contributing to mumbles can be found here.
Previous 0.3 version file and installation instructions are available here.
I installed it with debian package manager in Gutsy Gibbon and it was Ok!
I really like this update. I’ve been playing around with creating my own theme, something like the bezel display from Growl. Is it possible to center the title and message text? It isn’t critical but I haven’t been able to do it.
Currently, you are only able to position the text.
A package for Fedora Core would be greatly appreciated.
I installed mumbles on ubuntu 8.04 using the deb package and it works fine.
That’s awesome thanks !
I have installed on debian lenny and does not work
Warning: Unable to set option for growl network enabled. Falling back to default value.
The last line of “Installing mumbles from source” is “mumbles -help”. The switch should be either “-h” or “–help”
Is there a way to envoke mumble-send from cron? When I try, I get:
name = dbus.service.BusName (MUMBLES_DBUS_INTERFACE, bus=dbus.SessionBus(mainloop=dbus_loop))

It is not working in Debian Etch, even if I install the dependencies (python-setuptools and python-dbus, python-gtk2-dev, python-glade-1.2, python-gnome2-extras)
Just installed on Ubuntu 8.04 with the deb package, and works fine! Looks great too!
How do I install the pidgin plugin? I don’t know if I have it or not…
Great program btw, I love it, especially the mumbles-send
I can’t get any commands to work.
I installed mumbles from source in centos5 gnome.
all commands return this error command not found.
I couldn’t get this working right, i saw blocks of notification when someone talked to me on Pidgin, but the text was blocks of white, it was clearly the text being written over by white blocks, as the length was the same… Anyway nice program, it looks like it would work quite nicely if it wasn’t for that, the animation was smooth.
Hi Sicarul, I have not seen that particular issue. Could you open a forum thread & let me know some info about your computer? Distro/python version/etc. and perhaps email me a screen shot?
I’ve successfully installed it on Ubuntu Intrepid (8.10).
Deb-Package works fine on Ubuntu 8.10 (64bit). You have to install python-setuptools with aptitude before you can install the package.
I installed the mumbles in Ubuntu Hardy. It works!
I posted a Gentoo ebuild to gentoo’s bugzilla:
Hopefully it will make it into the official tree soon!
I had mumbles working great on Ubuntu 8.10, but recently upgraded to Jaunty. It keeps tossing a GrowlNetwork DepreciationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead import SocketServer, time, select, sys, md5, struct.
