Now available on PyPI and can be installed using easy_install. The package for Debian/Ubuntu is python-setuptools. Use your package manager to install this.

Now, type the following. You may need to prefix this with sudo if you want a system wide (not a virtualenv) installation.

easy_install pylms

Command Line Script

If installed through "easy_install" or via the setup script, there is a new command called "pylms" that can be used in scripts to control your devices.
