Running Ubuntu 12.10LTS on a desktop.
I have a SCR331 USB Smart card reader up and running with a generic brand of smartcard using the "entersafe" driver.
$ opensc-tool --info
opensc 0.12.2 [gcc 4.6.3]
Enabled features: zlib readline openssl pcsc(libpcsclite.so.1)
The reader works well:$ opensc-tool -l
# Detected readers (pcsc)
I bought a USB smart card reader, plugged it in, put in the card, and... now what? I'm so used to having whatever software I need available instantly by apt, that I can't figure out how to actually access the card. I've tried searching online, but all I can find are tutorials on writing drivers for smartcard readers. Searching apt-cache for smartcard similarly just produces a bunch of libraries.
Thanks for all who could help me to install a driver for smart card reader Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c476 II (rev b9).
The driver is available here
And according to http://sdricohcs.sourceforge.net/ the driver has been
included in the official kernel sources.
Unfortunately the smart card reader Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c476 II still not
recognized by Ubuntu for me.
Hi, a while ago I was up-loading some photos to my computer via my computer's card reader. Unfortunately when I was finished I forgot to Rt. click & eject the card. The next time I tried to use the card reader it would no longer function. I once did this with an older vsn of Ubuntu and was able to restore the card reader by re-installing the operating system.
Hello, I could use some instructions on how to get firefox to read and use my cac card. Under Yast the card reader shows up in hardware. I have install pcsc ccid and coolkey through Yast but not sure if I need to do anything else. I have followed instructions for loading the device in firefox but it does not load my certs off of the card. Please help. Thanks
and thank you all for giving time to try to help
I have an internal card reader in my HP Pavilion DV6-6155ca and the card reader is a "multi-card media reader" (I know this means nothing but trying to be though) and the device is the RTS5209 PCI Express Card Reader. I am running ubuntu 12.10
i have installed all kinds of stuff for the freaking cac reader to include cackey and pcsc tools. my problem is when i put in my card or anybodys card and in terminal tryp pcsc_scan it tells me my card is unresponsive. and naturally if i try to log into my ako or anything that requires the cac it does not work. But if i got to another computer a work computer or the MWR computer it works fine.
