Thanks for the hints. Magically it works now by its own after adding
this to the ~purism/.bashrc (the terminal app does not source .profile).

In a SSH session a 'pass test' asks now inline for the PIN and in the
terminal app some Gnome window pops up.

Maybe you want subscribe to this forum (if not already done). It's a
pity that Purism uses a "forum" and not a standard mailing-list :-(
