  • Hi @Wagner Ideali, Welcome. Ah let me see. Your edited program does not seem to match the earlier error message, therefore should mislead future readers. Anyway, I tried tracin back the original picture and reproduce your situation, but failed: imgur.com/gallery/1Rh4vVk. – tlfong01 41 mins ago   
  • Your original version seems to have a syntax/typo error of “serial.serial(…)” which should read “serial.Serial(…)”. So I tried to run your version 1 and got the same error as yours. So far so good. Now your version 2 have a new error. I guess it is the serial/.write and serial readline error. Anyway I have summarized version 1 and version 2 results in the following penzu link:penzu.com/p/350d51c9. If you can confirm I have understood your question correctly, then I would move on to compile my answer. Cheers.. – tlfong01 18 mins ago    


Linux and Python are case sensitive.

Try ser = serial.Serial(
