That simply means that scdaemon does not know the attribute name
"KEY-ATTR".  KEY-ATTR are required for the 2.0 cards.

Even gpg 1.4 redirects smartcard processing to gpg-agent/scdaemon if one
is active.  Obviously these tools neet to be ware of v2 cards.  You need
the latest GnuPG-2 release from SVN - a new release will follow soon.

In general you should use gpg2 if you are using gpg-agent.

Workaround until 2.0.13 is released: Put disable scdaemon info
~/.gnupg/gpg-agent and give gpg-agent a HUP.  Remove "use-agent" from
gpg.conf and gpg uses its internal code smartcard code.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
