(x)ubuntu + pgp key card the easy way...

1 minute read Published:

After this has been giving me a lot of headache and throwing curses at all and everything because nothing worked nearly out of the box – it looks like I finally managed to get gpg cards (yubi key and the one from kernelconcepts) working as intended …

sudo apt-get purge --remove libpam-gnome-keyring -y && \
sudo apt-get install pcscd pcsc-tools gpgsm gnupg-agent scdaemon -y && \
sudo reboot

and check out this link

Working – finally!

Additional info from 04.07.2016 – Looks like Ubuntu 16.04 also needs a

sudo chmod -x /usr/bin/ssh-agent

for not starting the ssh-agent anymore… (Any hints will be much appreciated!)…
