Did you install the libccid and pcscd packages, as described at
If that doesn't work, also try installing the gpgsm package -- for
whatever reason, my Crypto Stick didn't work until I installed that
package. If the package is removed, the Crypto Stick stops working. This
was the case for several Ubuntu and Mint systems, even fresh-from-the-CD
systems I created in VMs for testing, though your mileage may vary.
