Hello, I have tried :
apt-get install python-gtk python-serial python-libxml2

Those are not present in the repositories for Linux mint 20.

I tried to install:





+ other packages mentioning python and serial + gtk.

No luck on that.

Installed python3-pip and did :
WARNING: python-future package is not available;
chirp.drivers.anytone778uv requires it
WARNING: python-future package is not available; chirp.drivers.ga510
requires it
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./chirpw", line 24, in <module>
    from chirp.drivers import *
line 16, in <module>
    import serial
ImportError: No module named serial

Then tried :

 pip3 install serial
Collecting serial

Still the same issue with

How do I solve this, and WHY is there no packet available in the
dansmith ppa ?
There is apparently a depency missing to build the package for Focal,
because according to the build log:

Build status

[MANUALDEPWAIT] Dependency wait on lgw01-amd64-022

    Missing build dependencies: python-serial
    Started on 2020-07-18

    Finished on 2020-07-18 (took 1 minute, 37.3 seconds)

I have also asked about the issue with the modules here:
