[chirp_users] chirp connecting to UV-5R from Ubuntu 16.04 on Lenovo Carbon X1

I read here: http://www.miklor.com/COM/UV_Drivers.php
that I need to use an old version of the USB driver to work with the
Prolific chip set that I have in my cable. That web page gives details on
what to do for Windows, but I couldn't find anything for Ubuntu.

Does anyone know how to make sure I am using the correct driver for Ubuntu
16.04, and how to get the correct driver if it isn't?

Thanks

Kheong.
