Yes, simple: you don't have PyGTK installed. At least it is not
installed correctly. PyGTK is required before you can run Chirp (as
you've found).

We provide instructions for installing Chirp dependencies on
Debian/Ubuntu and Fedora/RedHat style systems:

Being an Arch user, I'm sure you can translate those instructions to
something appropriate for Arch. If not, maybe a more contextual
subject than "Linux My CHIRP Protests" will catch another Arch user's
eye and they will reply with some instructions for Arch. Or, now that
you know what the problem is, I bet a Google search would be fruitful.
