EMV Smartcard Reader

  3 years ago
  Generic (SmartCard Reader)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What was done to make it work:

I installed:
libccid
pcscd
pinentry-gtk2
pcsc-tools
libpcsclite-dev
libreadline-dev
coolkey
(libpcsclite1 & libreadline6 are installed by default)


To test it, connect the smartcard reader, insert a card, open a shell session and write:
pcsc_scan

If everything works properly, you'll read something like:

PC/SC device scanner
V 1.4.22 (c) 2001-2011, Ludovic Rousseau
Compiled with PC/SC lite version: 1.8.10
Using reader plug'n play mechanism
Scanning present readers...

Reader 0: Alcor Micro AU9540 00 00
Card state: Card inserted,
...

And so on. Press CTRL+c and close the console.

(The rest of this tutorial has to do with the process used to configure the smartcard reader with the Spanish identity card [DNIe])
