It’s best to uninstall the Unbuntu store version version before installing the daily verson.

By default the menu will show up in the bar at the top of the screen. You change this behaviour in settings

Well, CHirp is actually supposed to open as a window with no content. The content doesn;t show up until you read from a radio, open a file, or import from the various sources.

With regard to using the PPAs, I'm far from an expert, but my first guess would be that you need to uninstall the chirp you got from the ubuntu software stre befire attempting to use the PPAs.

Great! Thanks!

OK, I have Ubuntu and updated from 14.04 to 16.04.

On the "avalable Software application" I found Chirp. I choosed "install". I started the proram and the result was a frame with the titel "chrirp" on, but with no content.

I asked Dan Smith and he led me to this list and to


https://chirp.danplanet.com/projects/chirp/wiki/Running_Under_Linux#Ubuntu-package-via-PPA.

I folowed the instrctions an got error messages:

*** Error in `appstreamcli': double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x0000000002ed5460 ***

N: Datei »50unattended-upgrades.ucf-dist« in Verzeichnis »/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/« wird ignoriert, da sie eine ungültige Dateinamen-Erweiterung hat. (egl.: unvalid extention for filename)


E: Problem executing scripts APT::Update::Post-Invoke-Success 'if
/usr/bin/test -w /var/cache/app-info -a -e /usr/bin/appstreamcli; then appstreamcli refresh > /dev/null; fi'


E: Sub-process returned an error code

Later after step 3 again:

N: Datei »50unattended-upgrades.ucf-dist« in Verzeichnis »/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/« wird ignoriert, da sie eine ungültige Dateinamen-Erweiterung hat.(egl.: unvalid extention for filename)

And again:

N: Datei »50unattended-upgrades.ucf-dist« in Verzeichnis »/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/« wird ignoriert, da sie eine ungültige Dateinamen-Erweiterung hat. (egl.: unvalid extention for filename)


Of course I can copy the whole protocoll from my terminal here, if you want... What goes wrong? I have no idea....
