Good news--it works. Initially, I tried gpg2 (version 2.0.14), but it
didn't work. Instead, I got an error message that scdaemon wasn't
running. I searched for scdaemon on my system with "which scdaemon",
but I couldn't find it.
But now I can find scdaemon with "which scdaemon", and the only thing
that has changed has been that I compiled some software, installed some
packages, and, just this last evening, performed an update on my system.
I hadn't had any success with the pinpad until some time after the
update last night.
So I don't know what happened to fix my situation (I wish I knew). But
thank you to all of you who helped me. You have been a big help. :-)
