In 2.0.19. pinpad input is not supported through PC/SC.

The pinpad input feature for PC/SC has been added both of master and
STABLE-BRANCH-2.0.  You will be able to use it with forthcoming

I got a report that following card reader works fine:

  0c4b:0500 Reiner SCT Kartensysteme GmbH
  "REINER SCT cyberJack RFID standard (7592671050) 00 00"

Since it seems that your reader is newer than that, I hope that it
works well, too.

Besides, for both of master and STABLE-BRANCH-2.0, internal CCID
driver got improved.  I think that you can use your reader without
PC/SC.  If it works, it is better for your reader to be added
to good readers list of enable_varlen=1 in scd/ccid-driver.c
so that you don't need to configure.

If you have enough time, please try STABLE-BRANCH-2.0 of  Or else, please wait for 2.0.20.
