pcscd is not installed in the initramfs :). So your reader should be
supported by the internal driver of GnuPG for it to work.

You might have noticed you can optionally put a gpg.conf in /etc/keys
(or wherever your key is) and it will be copied and used in the initramfs.

Good luck,


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