SITECOM Card Reader MD-020 BE v1001 [NOT SUPPORTED]
« on: June 08, 2016, 07:07:21 am »
Installed the "eID software" for Tax on Web, I followed their own advice and this seems to work on Peppermint!
The problem I have is that the "eID Viewer" is asking "Please connect a smart card reader." while it is plugged in?

The smart card reader is a SITECOM all-in-one Card Reader MD-020 BE v1001, cheap and Made in China.

Additional drivers only shows my NVIDIA card and the drivers that I can find online are Windows/Mac only...  ::)
Is that smart card reader supported and if so, how can I make it work?

Thanks for your advice!  ;)

Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep ccid
I seriously doubt if this is gonna work .. according to this:
https://pcsclite.alioth.debian.org/ccid/section.html
the IDvendor:IDdevice string 1307:0361 doesn't appear to be supported.

But first answer the question above.

Nope, you have all the correct software installed, so I can only assume the card reader isn't supported by libccid as the link above suggests.
