For what it's worth, the external pinpad did start to work for me on
Ubuntu for awhile.  But then I changed something and it stopped (it may
have been enabling ssh support in the scdaemon -- I changed a few things
and didn't keep track of exactly what it was).  So the external pinpad
is very very close to working in Ubuntu.

Bad - You get pulled over for doing 90 in a school zone and you're drunk
off your ass again at three in the afternoon.
Worse - The cop is drunk too, and he's a mean drunk.
FUCK! - A mean drunk that's actually a swarm of semi-sentient
flesh-eating beetles.
