  • Scan on shell  if it works correctly: pcsc_scan
    • It should show 2 readers:
      Reader 0: OMNIKEY CardMan 5x21 00 00
      Card stat: Card removed;
      Reader 1: OMNIKEY CardMan 5x21 00 01
      Card stat: Card removed;
      
      
  • If it shows only one reader the driver was not installed correctly
  • start jcontrol --> runtime parameters:
    • -Dsun.security.smartcardio.library=/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpcsclite.so.1
  • Reboot
