I am setting up a computer with Mint 13 "Maya" xfce edition, to replace the WinXP installation of my (technically challenged) neighbours. I'm only slightly more knowledgeable myself, but I can follow instructions .
One of the "must-haves" here in Estonia is a working smart card reader, which we use with the government issues ID-cards. We use these things for tax declarations, everyday banking, ... If I can't get that to work, I need to find another distribution.
The authorities here offer an install script (https://installer.id.ee/media/install-s ... -ubuntu.sh), which I have adapted on the instruction of a helpful user (the modification is that the OPSYS variable points to the Ubuntu repo "precise" instead of to the non-existing repo Maya).
pcscd is running, and the necessary adaptations are made to Firefox.
However, when I run the utility that is officially provided (qesteidutil), it tells me that there is no card reader detected. In the terminal, the message "Virtual void QSmartcard::run () PSCSManager failure" appears.
The utility itself offers the following details:

Does anyone have any idea what is going wrong?
