Darn formatting no capital letters at the start.

pip install

I didn't know that pip would handle unarchiving tar.gz files automatically.
How cool is that?

I also second the flatpak model. Python-serial is just one of several
things you will need to get Chirp working on newer distributions.

If you do have pip still installed you should be able to (please excuse the

Pip install

I recently upgraded to Kubuntu 20.04. I have installed Python2 but I'm
unable to find python2-serial. Any ideas?

Some have been more aggressive (Fedora) and some less so but it looks like
all the more "current" releases are actively retiring Python 2 due to it
being EOL.

You can try my flatpak if you have flatpak support. I would consider it
experimental but I was able to download from my Wouxun UV6D.
