Disable Public Server List?

Post by 1st-time-long-time »

in the 1.3.0 release notes there is a section:

Server List
Added two new settings:
Option to disable the interactive add and edit action in the connect dialog.
This is meant for when the user isn’t supposed to change a pre-configured list of favorite servers.
Option to disable public server list

In the privacy section i found
Public Server List
When opening the public server list in the connect dialog, the client will request this list from our server. Only the data required for doing so is sent.

This functionality can be disabled through a hidden configuration setting (not visible in the user interface).

I am interested in the option to disable the public server list. where can i find this hidden config setting? i have ubuntu and windows clients.

This was implemented in https://github.com/mumble-voip/mumble/c ... fc6efe7ade
Added ui/disablepubliclist which if set to true removes the
public server list in the connect dialog. This option isn't
available in the UI and is meant for customizing setups in
specific deployments.

On windows you can enable the option by creating a string key
disablepubliclist under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mumble\Mumble\ui
with the value true.

Thank you! Do you know where I could insert this into my Ubuntu client’s? I am thinking possibly in .config/mumble.conf?

Yes that should be it. Check for the format. If it is ini style it should be in a [ui] section and setting name disablepubliclist, set to true.

Thank you for the replies! I added the registry entry to my windows client and set the variable in mumble.conf on my Linux clients and successfully disabled the public server list from showing up on the connect screen. This is exactly what I was after. Thanks again!
