Run Mumble client from CLI under Debian/Linux on a headless

Post by Moike »

Greetings,

I am building a Debian Mumble server on a Raspberry Pi 2 that runs headless that clients connect to remotely. But I would like to have a local client on the server so I can have a microphone/speaker/PTT button sitting on top the physical server that will allow me to communicate to the channel (only one active) despite the server being headless.

I can't find any clear mumble documentation on if you can in fact start mumble from the command line without using a desktop manager and still have access to the microphone/speaker/USB PTT button.

Anybody able to point me in the right direction for a solution?

Thanks,

I'll quote Natenom's reply from r/Mumble here for search purposes:

Full disclosure: I used to run a commercial Mumble host, and my opinions do not reflect the opinions of the Mumble project.
