So I am trying to install this software:

chirp.danplanet.com

on my asus eee with lucid desktop, and I can't seem to find any info on how to install it, I understand it needs to be compiled and I have tried but have never compiled anything before.
anybody know a link to a write up or have any experience with this file?

I have been trying to follow this write up on how to compile http://chirp.danplanet.com/downloads

I have made it to unpacking the tarball but am stuck on what to do next.
here is the beginning of the text I am stuck on "In the rare case of getting a program from a cvs or subversion repository, ........" etc


I will start over and try another method or whatever it takes, I'm just completely confused now. thanks for any help in advance

If you cd into the dir you untarred there should be a readme or install with instructions how to install

What did you do which generated that message? Did you try to run the setup script?

This appears to be a bunch of python scripts, which you don't have to compile.

You might find it helpful to look at Full Circle Magazine, Issue 27, which has the first article in a series on programming in Python. It should give you some basics, even if you have no plans to modify the package.

no readme or install file that I can find, I have managed to get the program to run, now I just need to figure out how to get it to recognize my radio
