Hi list users
My goal was to reset one of my GnuPG v2.1 smartcards because the PIN
counter had reached 3 and it had been locked "permanently". I am using
Fedora 23 with the PCMCIA Omnikey AG Cardman 4321.
I read many posts on the list showing me how to do this but I couldn't
communicate with my card using gpg-connect-agent console, every scd
command I attempted gave me a card error, except for scd restart which
said OK and started scdaemon if I had killed it.
Here is the output of gpg --card-status --debug-ccid-driver with the
locked card inserted: https://paste.fedoraproject.org/366386/24579314/
And here is my scdaemon.log when I've killed scdaemon, inserted my
card and attempt to use the command 'scd serialno' in the
In the scdaemon.log I can see errors like "ccid-driver: usb_bulk_read
error: Förbindelsen dog ut (timeout)" which means connection timed
out, and "apdu_send_simple(0) failed: card I/O error" further down.
On the console it replies ERR 100696113 In/ut-fel <SCD> which means
I/O error, gpg-connect-agent does not listen when I set LANGUAGE=C in
the environment so I can't force english errors.
My ~/.gnupg/scdaemon.conf looks like this.
The driver I downloaded from here hidglobal.com/drivers because I
think it was necessary for my card reader. I have another Gemalto
reader that seems to work without any additional drivers but it's
Pcscd is not running however.
I hope someone here understands what is wrong.
Vänliga Hälsningar / Sincerely
