In order for Gpredict to control the radio, hamlib has to be installed

Depending on which Linux distribution one uses, both can be installed
directly from the repository, though it might take a bit of hunting to
find which directory they're in.

Both Gpredict and hamlib can be installed manually, but the system
might complain about missing libraries.  There's a good chance that
those are in the distribution's repository as well.
