If GnuPG can't access it from the command line, Seahorse isn't going to
have any better luck.

With gnome-keyring-daemon running:

[rjh at isaiah Downloads]$ gpg2 --card-status
gpg: selecting openpgp failed: Card error
gpg: OpenPGP card not available: Card error

[rjh at isaiah Downloads]$ sudo gpg2 --card-status
gpg: OpenPGP card not available: Not supported
