You're probably better off just using pyserial:

If you really want to muck about with termios stuff, you can
look at the posix serial module in pyserial to see how it's

Have you looked at the documentation for termios.tcgettattr()?

It returns a list of integers.  If you want set them to zero,
then just set them to zero.

If you want a configuration that's all zeros, why bother
calling tcgetattr() at all?  Just set the configuration to

term_conf = [0,0,0,0,0,0]
