On my Windows PC I was at CHIRP daily-20211016. I just upgraded to CHIRP daily-20211105 and then to CHIRP daily-20211116, and in all 3 cases the RT95 and RT95 VOX selections are present (see attached snippet).

I am going to guess that you are not running Windows and apparently missed changing the Platform selection to reflect which operating system you are running.

The CHIRP driver for the AnyTone AT-778UV (which also supports variants like the Retevis RT95, Midland DBR2500, etc.) requires that the Python future package is present. With Windows, the future package is included in the installer. It is not included with Linux or macOS. If you are running Linux, you have to install the future package yourself. If you are running macOS, I don't know if you can add the future package yourself.

now i found information about this bug

Without looking at the rest of your post in detail, Mint 20 is based on Ubuntu 20.04 which has dropped support for Python 2. There has been a cull of Python2 packages from the repos as a result.

So, you should be looking to install packages such as python3-serial, python3-libxml2 (although I note that python-libxml2 is still in the repos), etc. etc. That is however assuming that the CHIRP package that needs those Python dependencies and libraries can actually support Python3 itself. Note also that there is not a python3-gtk package in the repos.

In saying that, I'm surprised that the CHIRP package in the PPA doesn't request those dependencies itself without you having to manually install them.

I get the impression that the CHIRP/Ubuntu 20.04 issue is very fluid and very current. I would recommend that you try the Flatpak in the meantime until the PPA gets sorted out. Also consider raising an issue with CHIRP on their website about the fact that packages they recommend you install no longer exist in the Ubuntu 20.04 repos.

  • Platform changed from Windows to Linux

Yes. Since Ubuntu/Mint 20 it is recommended that you use the CHIRP flatpak to get the missing dependencies. But that still doesn't include the future package.

I has to do with the python future package. Anything else would affect all radios. If the future package is not present, all radio models requiring it are skipped. There are 5 drivers that require it. After you get the flatpak installed, then install the future package and you should be good.

My previous comment has a link to the package.

I meant to close the ticket - I take it's not resolved?

Hi Joerg,

Are you using the flatpak installation of CHIRP? This is the easiest way to use CHIRP on modern Linux distributions. The flatpak includes everything users need including a compatible python runtime and all of the modules (future, suds, xml, etc)

For Ubuntu, I would also like to recommend the snap package that Dan and I are actively working on keeping in sync with the flatpak builds. Like the flatpak, it includes everything users need such as the python runtime and all modules (future, suds, xml, etc) but is available for more architectures such ARM which means you can install this on a raspberry pi. https://snapcraft.io/chirp-snap

yes , of curse I flatpak includes.

Updated by Bernhard Hailer 4 months ago

Jörg, did you install the "future" package as suggested earlier in this thread (see comment #4)? There are many others who can run Chirp on newer Debian / Ubuntu / Mint distributions just fine. You may want to ask on the mailing list for more direct help.

Updated by Joerg Korte 4 months ago

be sure , i add this future Pack


*Requirement already satisfied*: _future in /usr/local/lib/python3.8/dist-packages (0.18.2)
