I assume you use a modern card which allows for 2048 bit keys.  You are
out of lick: All Omnicard based readers work with such cards unless you
use Windows.  There is a workaround in gpg which sometimes help to get
something done with this reader but it is not reliable.

Another tool is using the reader.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
