[chirp_users] Using CHIRP with UBUNTU

No driver needed. USB serial devices are detected by the kernel.

It's very easy. Just edit the /dev/ttyS0 to /dev/ttyUSB0 or 1 whichever was detected. 

Do a 
ls -alt /dev/ttyU* 
in a terminal window to find which device it used after you've plugged in the cable.

You'll get something like this:
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188, 0 Jul 27 16:18 /dev/ttyUSB0

Make sure your user is part of the dialout group to avoid having to run Chirp as root.
