bash: setserial: command not found

Have you done a search on your machine for 'setserial'?
Are you sure it is installed?
Is it in your path?
If you find it, try it with the absolute path in the command.
You may need to be root with 'su -', which gives you the root environment, instead of just 'su'.

good luck...
