Re: Bug#627038: ITP: libacsccid -- PC/SC driver for ACS USB CCID smart card readers
Zitat von Godfrey Chung <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
Yes, libccid works for a few models only while libacsccid works for
all models of ACS CCID smart card readers.
You can download the drivers from
http://www.acs.com.hk/index.php?pid=drivers. For example, select
ACR122U (http://www.acs.com.hk/index.php?pid=drivers&id=ACR122U) and
you will find the driver
(http://www.acs.com.hk/drivers/eng/ACR122U_driver_Lnx_Mac10.5_10.6_1.02_P.zip). The driver "acsccid-1.0.2.tar.bz2" is in the zip
I am a maintainer of the driver. acsccid-1.0.2 is based on
ccid-1.3.11 and supports all models of ACS CCID smart card readers.
The driver is tested by software and hardware engineers from ACS.
I figured from your mail address that ACS is directly involved here.
OTOH, why are those changes not pushed to libccid upstream? For
generic protocols like CCID (where even Windows has a generic driver
for it), there should not be a driver set for each vendor, it simply
defeats the purpose of generic protocols like that.
Your example of ACR122U is marked as "should work" at
If the libccid upstream is not cooperative for including your changes
(if it's done in a clean way), maybe you can work with the Debian
