[chirp_users] Using Chirp with Ubuntu

Hello all,

I really appreciate al the help and suggestions given. All informative and useful.

Turns out that old age has gotten the better of me and stupidity has set in with a vengeance.

I had not plugged in the cable (duh !!), so there was nothing to be detected. Now all is well, 
and CHIRP works fine. In fact it feels more stable than on Windows XP.

So again thanks for a job well done.

{ Now who knows about a good HF rig control program for UBUNTU?}

Geoffrey
