-----The vendor doesn't want to add the modeswitch on their system. We try to push them to do it, but they don't agree.

------Sorry, it is one command, but with different values in it for different system, such as:
1. For Windows:
{0x11, 0x06, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, 0x01, 0x00,
- 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00};
2. For Mac OS:
{0x11, 0x06, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, 0x01, 0x00,
- 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00};
3. For Linux:
{0x11, 0x06, 0x20, 0x00, 0x00, 0x01, 0x01, 0x00,
- 0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00};

Sometimes, modeswitch will send the command for Windows to device on Linux system, but not the command for Linux.

-----For this issue, can you offer more details? And we can try to solve it together.
