I tried to install openct, there was communication with the reader with the standard CCID, I can get communication with a VISA card but with the Belgian eID I get error at protocol selection and the beidgui was not working neither.

# openct-tool atr

Card present, status changed

VISA card replies correct ATR & protocol selection:

# cardos-info

I could finally get it working, not with openct which gave the broken results as shown above but with libccid and pcscd:
Edit /etc/libccid_Info.plist and add the vendor/product ID to the list, e.g.:

--- libccid_Info.plist.old      2008-02-04 23:54:26.000000000 +0100
+++ libccid_Info.plist  2008-02-04 23:55:23.000000000 +0100

Now a simple call to beidgui works :-)
Check Belgian eID for other experiments with the eID card under Linux.

Avoid openct to try to open the reader: edit /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_openct.rules and comment out:

# ccid
#ENV{MODALIAS}=="usb:*ic0Bisc00*", RUN+="/lib/udev/openct_usb"

Note that I've still many messages in /var/log/messages like:

pcscd: ifdhandler.c:948:IFDHTransmitToICC() lun: 0
last message repeated 5 times
pcscd: ifdhandler.c:948:IFDHTransmitToICC() lun: 0
last message repeated 7 times

I could get rid of those by lowering the level of verbosity in by creating a file /etc/default/pcscd (pcscd >= 1.4.99-2) with:


Still one issue: everything works up to the moment I remove and reinsert the card, after that, no way, always errors such as:

pcscd: eventhandler.c:316:EHStatusHandlerThread() Error communicating to: iDream ID-SMID01 00 00
commands.c:938:CmdGetSlotStatus Hardware error
ifdwrapper.c:494:IFDStatusICC() Card not transacted: 612

And I've to unplug and replug the reader from USB

Other useful package:

apt-get install pcsc-tools
