CHIRP on Manjaro KDE

by on Aug.13, 2023, under HAM (ARO), Linux, Techie

I have found the snapd version of CHIRP (free, open-source tool for programming your radio) was problematic when trying to set permissions for it to access the physical interface when the radio is plugged into the computer. Further research found that this can be installed from the AUR repo’s. Below are the steps I used and at he bottom of the post will be links to the source materials I used:

  1. Enable AUR (Arch User Repository): Add/Remove Software > (three dots/hamburger menu) > Preferences > Third Party (tab) > “Enable AUR support” and “Check for updates” > Close the Add/Remove Software
  2. From CLI: pamac build chirp-next

Enable Arch User Repository (AUR) in Manjaro – Linux for Devices
Chirp Radio Software – Support / Third-party Applications – Manjaro Linux Forum
