I ran into some issues running Chirp after installing in a Python virtualenv.

  • chirpw has a hardcoded path to /usr/bin/python
  • xml schemas, and pixmaps weren't found because they're not in /usr/share

I'm working on fixes.

The patch was submitted to the dev list:


As best I can tell, they were never merged in to the main code.

I attached the relevant patch for reference. I haven't been actively working on chirp code lately, but we should validate if these fixes are still relevant.
