I am working with an MT development kit on ubuntu 14.04, I'm trying to use the xsens driver for ROS indigo but when I do

rosrun xsens_driver --configure --output-mode=coapvs --output-settings=tqMAG

i'm getting this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/ros/indigo/lib/xsens_driver/", line 1124, in <module>
  File "/opt/ros/indigo/lib/xsens_driver/", line 972, in main
    mt = MTDevice(device, baudrate)
  File "/opt/ros/indigo/lib/xsens_driver/", line 30, in __init__
  File "/opt/ros/indigo/lib/xsens_driver/", line 382, in auto_config
  File "/opt/ros/indigo/lib/xsens_driver/", line 287, in ReqConfiguration
    self.header = '\xFA\xFF\x32'+chr(length)
ValueError: chr() arg not in range(256)

Please help me, I dont know if there's a problem with my sensor, the Ubuntu version or the driver.
