I would really like to use my card reader's PIN pad to enter the PIN
for my keys stored on an OpenPGP smart card. I have a cyberJack
pinpad(a). Currently, when I'm required to enter my PIN, pinentry pops
up and the reader's pad is ignored.

Unfortunately, in a >4 years old message, somebody stated regarding
those cyberJack readers and PCSC:

I'm not sure whether things have changed since then, or if I'm just
doing something wrong. I am using pcsc-lite and GPG 2.

If there is really no way to use my reader's PIN pad, could you please
recommend me some well-supported reader to replace my current one?
