You need to add your user to the dialout group.

To do this do the following:

1. Open gnome-terminal

2. Type:

sudo adduser your_user_name dialout

Replace your_user_name with your actual user name.

3. Reboot

Chirp should work normally.

If you installed Chirp from ubuntu-software, you will want to remove 
that version, and install the Chirp PPA. The version in ubuntu-software 
is out of date.

The Chirp website is located at:

I hope this helps.
