"card not transacted" used to be a catch-all error of pcsclite.  Please
try the internal driver of scdaemon: Stop pcscd and that driver will be
used.  If that still does not work check the permissions of the USB
device (you need write access) and add

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
debug 2048
log-file /foo/bar/scd.log
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

to ~/.gnupg/scdaemon.conf.  Kill scdaemon ("gpgconf --kill scdaemon" or
"pkill scdaemon")

> So my question is, can i have my 3 keys + 1 cert in the card? how can i

Yes.  Please use a recent version of GnuPG because a bug concering the
reading of long certificates was recently fixed.
