Hello there,

I have the omnikey cardman 4040 pcmcia cardreader in my Notebook and 
want to use it with gnupg. Imho all requirements are met:

a few sessions ago I added myself to the group scard and 

ls -l /dev/cm*


crw-rw---T 1 root scard 251, 0 Jul 12 12:49 /dev/cmx0
(in the file /etc/udev/rules.d/50-pcscd_ccid.rules there is the line
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="cardman_4040", GROUP="scard", MODE="0660"

but when I do 

gpg --card-status --debug-ccid-driver

I get

gpg: DBG: ccid-driver: failed to open `/dev/cmx0': Device or resource busy
gpg: DBG: ccid-driver: failed to open `/dev/cmx1': No such file or directory
gpg: DBG: ccid-driver: no CCID reader with number 0
gpg: pcsc_establish_context failed: no service (0x8010001d)
gpg: card reader not available
gpg: OpenPGP card not available: general error

any suggestions?

Kind Regards
