Success, silly me, I forgot to log out and log back in.
Dialout is now on the list and I have downloaded the UV-5R. Thank you very much guys.
Linux is fun, so much better than I ever thought it would be. Giving new life to the old laptops in the shack.
Now will try it on Zorin too.
I see a number of Ham related applications available for Linux. What are the main ones recommended to play with? I have GPredict satellite tracking running.

Welcome to the world of Linux...
I think you just need
to add your login username to the group called
Then it will work.
There is a graphic
interface for this - but it's really easy to type a
couple of lines in a terminal screen to make it happen.
terminal and run the following. (replace USERNAME with your
sudo usermod -a -G dialout
(you will be asked for the password of the account
who setup the Linux install - probably you - so put yours
(if alls well now type this)
(press enter and it will list groups
you are a member of, this should now include dialout
Importantly - now log out and back in again and
it should work.
Hope this helps -
It's the first job to do to a ham radio install.
If you want to check up on this
first - you would be adding an already existing username to
an already existing group.
finding a local Linux User Group might be a good idea,
there's nothing like face to face support!

I am new
to Linux (Linux Mint 17.2 and Zorin 9.0). I have installed
CHIRP on both computers. But I am unable to download from
my Baofeng UV-3R or Baofeng UV-5R. In each case it appears
it does not find, or allow me access to, the Com Port ttyS0,
or any port for that matter. Probably something simple I
do not know about being new to Linux. Can anyone please
give me some advice? Thanks
