SSL certificate accepted only for root user


Recommended Posts


my mumble client refuses to connect to any server when launched as normal user. It loops on the certificate acceptation pop-up window. When i click "accept", it disconnects, then reconnect and re-ask... Forever. If i launch mumble as root, it only ask once, then connect to the server. My guess is that it may be access rights related, but where?

My config :

- distro : linux from scratch 6.2

- mumble : 1.2.2 compiled from source

- Qt : 4.4.3 (also tried 4.5.3, and 4.6.3 with no luck)

- Openssl 0.9.8q

- kernel :

- soundcard : Realtek ALC 850

- alsa driver : snd-intel8x0 v1.0.23

Please help!

Run mumble from an Terminal/Console to see the warnings and other information. The output can be quite long when you log into a server with a large number of channels, but as you are not able to login this should not be a problem.

Computer specs: AMD FX-8320, 8GB DDR3-SDRAM, AMD Radeon HD 7950, Asus Xonar D1, Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit/Debian Jessie AMD64.

Thanks pcgod! You pointed me to the right direction :

the database which stores accepted SSL certs is in ~/.local/share/Mumble/Mumble

Actually it's in .local/share/data/Mumble/Mumble. I removed the ".mumble.sqlite" file within, and re-started mumble.

...And it worked. The file must have been corrupted i don't know how.

thanks again,


@ rawnar : i tried it countless times, but mumble is not exactly verbose (even the debug build), and it didn't give me any clues... But thank you anyways.
