you could also try to run this:
sudo easy_install pygtk pyserial

If easy_install doesnt work, try installing whatever package provides this.. on ubuntu its python-setuptools

If that doesnt work try to install whatever package installs pip, and then use pip to install those modules.

This is a generic python/dependency issue unrelated to chirp, so you will probably have better luck chasing this down on some python/pygtk or your os distro support forum/mailing list, etc.

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.
