There are a lot of reasons for this.  Did you install scdaemon?
Doesit work?  You might want kill a running scdaemon and test this

  $ scdaemon -v --server

then enter

  learn --force

you should see lines with information on the card.  If it does not
show anything, add --debug 2048 to the invocation and make sure that
scdaemon.conf does not redirect the log file.

Use gpg --card-status.  Also try without the agent running.
