Hi Glenn - you're missing qt - or possibly Ubuntu graphics in general.

You need qt to run chirp.

After you boot to Ubuntu does it start graphical user interface which 
which requires a login?

When you say "Chirp is in accessories"  which machine are logged into? 
That is in the accessories on which machine?
