I added the repository per the instructions on that page.
I then attempted to reinstall chirp. It stated chirp was already at the newest version.

I then next did the apt-get install for the 3 packages (python-gtk python-serial and libxml2. Apt-get reported that python-gtk does not exist.

This is starting to become a major frustration. 

also, for some reason, ubuntu software center won't allow me to check all sources (states partially checked).so, both the command line and GUI attempts have failed. I really wish I could get voiceover on this mac to read the X display apps. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a way to do that, or I would install here on the mac using macports.
