You'd probably be better installing the packages individually from the
appropriate repository, using Synaptic (or whatever modern Ubuntu uses
for package management).

I'm sorry to say that amateur radio software in Linux is if anything
slightly worse than amateur radio software in Windows.  At least you
mostly don't have to pay to use ten-year-old shareware.  I started
packaging some commonly-used amateur radio apps for Arch Linux, but gave
up on it a bit when I realised how much work it would take to make them
even vaguely usable on modern systems.
