Hub,

I agree with Jens. This is not really a CHIRP issue. CHIRP Live CD does not
boot to CHIRP. It boots to the desktop. After it does, you have to launch
CHIRP.

The CHIRP Live CD is based on Xubuntu 12.04. I would recommend that you
download a copy of it and make a live CD to see how it works. I would
expect it to behave the same way.

My CHIRP Live CD (actually Live USB flash drive) does not like my Nvidia
video card. It will not boot unless I hit the [TAB] key at the boot menu
and add the "nomodeset" kernel option to the list of default options. I had
the same experience with Ubuntu 12.04 and older version of Linux mint. You
may find that some other kernel option needs to be added to be compatible
with your hardware.
