Hello everyone, I have laptop Esprimo Mobile U9210 with o2Micro Smart card reader.
I try to use pcscd daemon
I read manual: Smart card reader drivers are placed in the /usr/lib64/pcsc/drivers
directory. Each driver is simply an .so file. pcscd locates the driver
using the /etc/reader.conf file. See the reader.conf(5) manual page
for more information.
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.
I installed the id card reader qesteidutil from vivid repo
The card reader is correctly recognized but my ID card can't be read: the error is "* ACS ACR 38U-CCID 00 00 Error reading card data:The requested protocols are incompatible with the protocol currently in use with the smart card"
With the latest live kde mageia distro, which let me discover this software, my ID card gets correctl
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.
