Has anyone successfully installed the Plugable USB-serial converter on a Raspberry Pi

Title say is all. I want to control a robot that speaks RS-232 from a USB port on my Raspberry Pi. I believe the Linux drivers shipped might be what I need, but I am a novice at Linux and the Pi, so I have no clue what to do to get them installed.

Further, I’d like to do some testing using the Pi terminal, and I’m not sure what Linux commands/tools might all me to set baud rate, etc. to communicate properly with the robot.

Lastly, I want to use Python to eventually do the control, and I’m not sure what libraries I need to load.
