AFAIK, only the internal CCID driver supports entry on the pinpad, and it is by
default enabled when using the internal CCID driver. However, if you have pcscd
running, I suppose GnuPG will use that. Then the pinpad is not supported.

So: do you have a pcscd running? If you don't need it, stop it, and scdaemon
will use it's interal driver.



I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
