OpenSUSE Hardware :: Getting CAC Card Reader To Work In 11.2
Dec 9, 2009
I could use some instructions on how to get firefox to read and use my cac card. Under Yast the card reader shows up in hardware. I have install pcsc ccid and coolkey through Yast but not sure if I need to do anything else. I have followed instructions for loading the device in firefox but it does not load my certs off of the card.
I just installed opensuse 11.2 on my laptop in a dualboot configuration with windows 7.I prefer using suse, but also recognize, that once in a while, windows is useful.One of the things i like to do in linux is handle my photos with f-spot/gimp, but for some reason my laptops built in card reader is not recognized by the system. If a card is inserted, it doesn't even show up in the partition manager..?I'm not completely new to linux, but i'm not an advanced user either, so i can't figure out what to do here
I can't seem to get my card reader to work. The USB port on the reader works and sometimes I can read my SD card. Usually, nothing shows up in the media/ folder. I looked at this write-up [URL]... but I'm not sure if this is what I should do. Here are some info I was able to pull up:
I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 32 bits version on a desktop PC. Every thing works OK, exept for a USB hub and card-reader combination from IN-WIN Inc. I could not find a clue on the Internet. The manufacturer and apparatus code is: ID 10df:0500 (as from "lsusb").
Below I have listed all the hardwire of the PC, as obtained from "lshw". The italic part at the bottom deals with the IN-WIN module. I suspect that it may have to do something with the "emulated scsi-host" thing, of which I just know nothing about.
I found a solution to my card reader problem in a another fedora post but when I type the code in terminal I get: all config files need.conf /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist How to write this code so I wont get this error and I can load these modules and also how to edit the modprobe.conf.
The code is below, using fedora 13. You must load these two modules to work with card reader. First : Remove the card from the Reader! AS superuser type in console : 1. /sbin/modprobe tifm_core <enter> 2. /sbin/modprobe tifm_sd <enter>
If you want to automate these modules loading do the following : edit the /etc/modprobe.conf file add these : alias mmc_core tifm_core alias mmc_card tifm_sd
When I insert the xD card into the built-in 5 in 1 card reader of my laptop it doesn't work. An SD card for example does work with this reader, so it is not a "faulty hardware" problem we are talking about right now, and neither is a "HW is not recognized" kind of a problem. My card reader is seen as a
Code:0f:06.2 Mass storage controller: Texas Instruments 5-in-1 Multimedia Card Reader (SD/MMC/MS/MS PRO/xD)in the lspci output.I use debian testing with a 2.6.32-trunk kernel (what is this "trunk" here anyway?)I know this isn't a unique problem and with a cheap external USB powered card reader (I have one) this whole thing can be worked around, but still.
I have problem with my Genesys Logic memory card reader. I'm trying to read SD-memory card. When I put the memory card in to the card reader, nothing happens. Also ls /dev/sd* don't show any new drives/partitions.Here is my dmesg when I put the card in:
Code: [ 2808.136056] usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 82 [ 2808.264921] usb 1-5: New USB device found, idVendor=05e3, idProduct=0710
Everything worked fine in Kubuntu 10.04 (64-bit). On the upgrade to 10.10 (64-bit) it takes about a minute until I can move the mouse after startup and the integrated memory card reader doesn't work (but the green LED which used to only come on when there was a card in there is now always on). This has been discussed twice before: here (closed and solved by unplugging cardreader which I do not want to do) and here (unsolved but closed as maverick no longer in beta) dmesg (note the errer -110) follows. Let me know if I can/should include any other logs/info!

I'm running openSUSE 11.4 on an HP 630 laptop with KDE. Everything works fine but cards inserted into the internal SD card reader are not read, and from what I can tell the reader is not recognized at all by openSUSE on my system. The reader does not appear listed in hardware information and is not listed with the command fdisk -l . There appear to be no references at all to the reader. The reader is recognized, however, on a live USB of Linux Mint 11, where the model is listed as "Generic - xD/SD/M.S." (the vendor too), revision 1.00. It is listed as an SCSI Controller scsi5. Typing lsscsi in the termal of openSUSE provides the following:

Does any one know about fingerprint in HP dv4 to work.
fprint is installed but didnot detect the reader.

Looking for a card reader/writer that will support most current card types. I am running Fedora 12 x86_64 on a home-grown desktop. Are there any gotchas, that I need to watch for?Also, Internal vs. external, any benefits of one over the other, or is it just personal preference?
I have openSUSE 11.2, 64 bits. I use Evince from the very beginning. Since a few weeks, when I want to open a .pdf file, Acrobat Reader appears and reads my file. It seems to have become the default reader now. However, I never wanted to change from Evince :this simple program is well enough for me. I tried various ways, but I can't define Evince as my default .pdf reader. How can I make Evince to become my default reader again please ?
I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 in my system. I have plug in th USB card reader but it is not detected. Eventhough the same card is detected when I'd pluged in at last night and I have just browse the folders in the memory card.Then I just right click on the icon in media folder and click eject the texts in file /var/ log/messages for above operation.
I am very new to Linux. I installed ubuntu 9.10 on my Acer 3050 aspire. It works very well except for a few issues. I can not use my 5 in 1 card reader, nothing shows up in "computer" except "cd/dvd" and "file system". My lg phone does not show up when using my data cable as mass storage, and the touch pad is too sensitive, (i have adjusted the settings listed under mouse/touchpad but to no avail. The biggest problems is the card reader and phone. Can this be fixed?
I've recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad z470, and installed Debian Wheezy amd64 on it first thing. I was pleased to find that almost everything worked "out of the box." The only problems were the hotkeys and the card reader. I don't care if the hotkeys ever work, but the non-working card reader is more aggravating than I anticipated. I would be most obliged if anyone could lend a hand.So, first things first, here's the output of uname -a:Linux cerulean 2.6.39-2-amd64 #1 SMP Tue Jul 5 02:51:22 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/LinuxHere's the syslog output upon inserting an sd card into reader:

My PC is an Intel Core-i7-950 with 8GB RAM. The motherboard is an Intel Extreme, DX580G. Ubuntu (64) 10.10 is the only OS run on this system, and uses the entire hard-disk.
Today, I purchased an internal USB card reader that connects to the USB socket on the motherboard. Once I connected it, the PC started hanging on boot. When it hangs, there is nothing but a non-blinking, still cursor on the top left corner of the screen.
Earlier I had set the Grub2 boot delay to '0', and therefore I guess I do not get to see any messages or the Grub2 menu.
The story is the same with an external USB card-reader. If I connect the external card-reader and try to boot, the PC hangs in the manner described above.
If I disconnect the internal / external USB card-reader, everything is normal.
The following web-page describes the problem in the manner I can understand. But it does not provide a permanent solution.

I just did a fresh install of OpenSuSE 11.2 for my fiancee on her new HP Mini 110-1030NR, and everything works great, except for the 5 in 1 card reader. Here is the information I believe you may find relevant:

I'm using USB 3G modem and it has SD card reader embedded. I am also using USB hard drive as boot device. It is a Netgear WNDR 3700 router. I am posting it in here because it is a general question, not really associated with embedded installations. When loading the system from power up my HDD get's /dev/sda assigned and my modem SD card reader: /dev/sdb [although there's no SD card inserted]. But when booting after restart hard drive is sdb and modem is sda. Thanks to that I get kernel panic and all is over. I have to manually reboot. I cannot use initrdfs so I can't use UUID/LABEL to identify the device. Is there any way I could stop this SD card reader from loading? I believe it uses usb mass storage driver, just as my hdd.
I have a new computer with with an SSD internal drive, built in SD card reader, and USB expansion ports.If I populate media in all slots and type "fdisk -l" I get a listing of the partitions for the external USB ports but fdisk doesn't report anything for the internal media. If I unplug the USB drives and type fdisk it just goes to the command line. If I type "df" it locates the partitions for the internal SSD drive but doesn't report anything for the media in the built in reader. If I type "mount" the same thing.
I've looked in /dev/ but I can't find anything that looks like something I can mount. I'd expect something like sda1 or something similar but it's not there. The contents of /media/ do report something called "card" but going there and typing "ls" doesn't get me any result. There is also an entry for "mmc1" but it too doesn't report anything.
I am trying to disable the built-in card reader in my MBP (5,3) running Debian testing. I've noticed that powertop lists the card reader as a major contributor of wake up events and would like to disable it as I rarely need to read SD cards.
I just bought a new Nikon S570 digital camera and I was trying to mount the camera via the USB cable in order to get the pictures off of it but either a) I don't know how to mount the camera properly or b) there is some sort of compability or program that I need to install in order to get it to work. According to lsusb it the camera shows up as being connected:

Also, I tried to plug the SD card into the built in card reader but it never showed up either. Do I need to do anything different to get the SD card to mount too?
