Hi,

Argyll version is standard from the Ubuntu apt archive (1.5.1-5ubuntu1)

fairly old. Why not switch to the latest code, V1.9.1, rather than
using out of date distro builds ?

But, when I use chartread, there is no "beep" or any visual indication of a 
strip scan.

chartread simply emits a Bell character (^G) to the terminal. If your
terminal doesn't make any sound for the Bell character, then you need
to configure your systems so that it does.
See <http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/Installing_Linux.html> for some hints that
may help you get it working.

As explained in the imstrument doco:
<http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/instruments.html#strip>
you need to press and hold the button.

However, once I'm prompted to start strip scanning, nothing seems to happen. 
I tried
clicking the ColorMunki key, then scan, then hitting the key again. 

You need to follow the instructions that came with your instrument as to
how it operates. Also see:
<http://www.argyllcms.com/doc/instruments.html#strip> and ColorMunki.

Cheers,

Graeme Gill.
