in thread Reading serial port data into a file
Yes. Have used Device::SerialPort::Arduino to read data coming from the USB interface on the chipKIT UNO PIC based Arduino clone. The chipKIT UNO uses the FTDI FT232R USB serial converter chip and FTDI FT232R drivers are available on my Unbuntu 10.10 laptop. This is a pretty commonly used USB support chip.
