In case you have issues with this driver or you prefer not to use a proprietary driver, you can also update the device firmware to version 1.20.

You can find out the current firmware version using lsusb -vd 04e6: | grep bcdDevice. Maybe older firmware versions work too, if the output of the above lsusb command contains a ChipCard Interface Descriptor: section. Firmware version 1.20 implements the CCID standard and is therefore compatible with the generic open source driver found in the ccid repo package.

To update you have to use Windows, but it also works in a VM with USB passsthrough. You first have to install the corresponding Windows driver for the device and then execute the firmware update tool, both available at .

In my case the file was lacking the USB ID 0x5292 of my reader. I added it using the following patch, works flawless.

Unfortunately, the download link is dead and the manufacturer does not seem to provide a download of this driver anymore.
