Subject: smartcard reader  on edubuntu thin client
To: laserjock at ubuntu.com


I'm realy desperate. For an educational project we are using Ubuntu
8.04 lts + LTSP

The users on the Thin client need an USB smartcard reader like ACR38u

I have installed it as described in the instructions in a test
environment  Server + 1 TC

As the Smart card reader is plugged in into the server it works. If I
plug it in into the TC it do not works.

The Belgian id reader software tels me at that moment "OpenCT reader (detached)"

I can plug and unplug it in the TC, restart plugged in unplugged , all
combination noting is helping.

If I do the same on the server it works every time.

Following the instructions I have made the user member of the group
"scard and chipcard"

Is there a way to let this work.

Best regards
