Sinds today (25 jan 2020) Chirp does not work in version 20.04.
The version in the repositories of *buntu 18.04 don't work also, but the daily build in the PPA works fine.
Can anyone use my setup of 20.04 for testing the future version?

It seems that Ubuntu 20.04 removed python2 and all packages that depended on python2.
More info at https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2020-February/040918.html

It also seems that Ubuntu 20.04 doesn't have chirp in the repositories anymore, so this issue is probably moot and can probably be closed. Similar things have happened in Debian and Fedora

Closed for now; a Python 3 project is in the works and has a ticket elsewhere already.

Updated by Tony Fuller over 2 years ago

CHIRP depends on python2 and several other python2 related packages. These have been removed from Ubuntu 20.04

As CHIRP is migrated to python3, you can try a flatpak that is in early development in the meantime.

From https://www.flatpak.org/setup/Ubuntu/

sudo apt install flatpak

If that doesnt work then try:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alexlarsson/flatpak
sudo apt update
sudo apt install flatpak

Now that flatpak is installed, you'll need to set up the gnome plugin and the default repository

sudo apt install gnome-software-plugin-flatpak
flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo

Now that flatpak is all set up try out this flatpak by Richard Shaw

curl -LO https://hobbes1069.fedorapeople.org/chirp-20200430.flatpak
flatpak uninstall chirp
flatpak install chirp-20200430.flatpak

If you already had flatpak installed, you'll immediately notice a CHIRP icon in your programs list.
If you just installed flatpak, log out and log back in to see the new CHIRP icon in your programs list.
