"Denied: Text message too long" when trying to save image

Sorry about that stupid error message, this is our backend/protocol shining through :oops: Images are put into the comments encoded as "text". In 1.2.0 this made the text length limitations apply to them and hence the message. Later we introduced a separate limit but the message stayed.


If you are not in control of the server you have to make the image smaller to fit the limit. However if you are in control of the server you can also increase said limit. Look for the following in your murmur.ini, the second on is the one you want to adjust (of course uncomment it first^^):

# Maximum length of text messages in characters. 0 for no limit.
#textmessagelength=5000

# Maximum length of text messages in characters, with image data. 0 for no limit.
#imagemessagelength=131072

Be sure to restart murmur after modifying the ini.


edit: Nearly forgot. You cannot set an imagemessagelength with an 1.2.0 server since we added this feature later. I'm not really sure whether it was in 1.2.1 or 1.2.2 though so just watch our for the variable in your ini.

We have no "default" type image for comments. Are you talking about avatars? Because these are set with "Self->Change Avatar".


If that isn't what you meant then the best thing would be to provide a screenshot (or a more precise description).

Ah. I see. That's a linux thing. We needed to add functionality to Qt (the framework we use to build the Mumble GUI) to handle this functionality (namely data uri support for QTextDocuments,more here). This is contained in the current Qt release but your distro apparently ships with an outdated Qt hence this feature is not working.


(this problem isn't present on windows since there we ship our own Qt binaries)
