However, you need make to sure that scdaemon has the permission to
write to the smartCard reader USB device.  This is a matter of Proper
Hotplug/udev/systemd/whatever configuration.

Pcscd runs as root an thus you won't run into permission problems.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
