Please make a spreadsheet and in it list the action, the command, and the response received. It appears to be just an ASCII based protocol with nothing complicated so far.

Ok, this is the serial command I found while sniffing and the response.
my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=kZG2n87Z...BoHvE1O2wRDNLk849le7

I was typing command in serial terminal. My sniffer was showing me a lot of other thing that I dont understand, like Modbus RTU and other really complicated things that I don't understand that look like whats in the files I previously sent you in another comment.
Do you need more than the serial command and theyr action?
The serial beaud rate seem to be programmable, I can set 9600 and it work and I can set 19200 it work too, I think the software set it to 19200.
The. windows driver seem totally bugged, I always have to plug unplug the usb after a close to be able to reconnect, I hope in Linux that will fix that

Tell me whats yoo need I'll do my best.
Thank you
Martin

I think the information your provided is enough for now. Hopefully in the next week I can come up with a preliminary driver for this.

ok, Just wait before working on it, It seem that I have a problem with my filter wheel under linux, the lsusb command don't detect my filter wheel, and It don't create a /dev/ttyUSB0 , nothing. Mayb the Quantum driver will work if I can find a way to communicate with serial terminal first. Just wait before putting effort in it It mayb be another problem than I tough.

Right, maybe it's not a serial-usb device since you mentioned modbus? Anyway, let me know the results of your investigation into this.

Ok I can get it listed with lsusb, it is creating port /dev/ttyACM0 , wich is the same as the quantum driver, but nothing more, the Quantum driver is mayb not issuing the same command I dont know how to find and edit the driver. It mayb simple as editing the existing Quantum driver and change serial command issued to the one of my filter wheel.
I think it really need its own driver to work.

UPDATE: The quantum driver seem to work with it. For some reasons I am trying to find I played with something that made it work. I am trying to reproduce ot, but you don't have to put effort on writting another driver
I am investigating what I've done that make it work

Here is what I think happened. When I was trying to acess the filter wheel directly with serial terminal, I experienced problem with ressouce or device busy error. Reading on the internet I came across a solution about removing the modemmanger:
sudo apt-get purge modemmanager
Mayb that is what was preventing the driver to communicate with the filter wheel, tricking me thinking that it was a wrong driver.
Now I can connect my filter wheel correctly.
Thats is the only thing I can think about I have made that change.
Sorry about that, if that can help others its cool.
so Nautilus Filter wheel = Quantum filter wheel
