My computer is a Dell Latitude 6430u, and the O2Micro OZ77CR6 Smart Card reader is not available. Has anyone encountered the same situation?

you can find your SmarCard Smartcards, here

First you should be sure that your system detect your smart card :

open a terminal and type the follow :


install opensc (OpenSC provides a set of libraries and utilities to work with smart cards) :

sudo dnf install opensc ccid pcsc-lite pcsc-tools

enable the systemd process daemon :

sudo systemctl enable pcscd        # enable at boot
sudo systemctl start pcscd         # start the process
sudo systemctl status pcscd        # verify the status

Workaround in Terminal

insert the card :

sudo pcsc_scan

check the lector :

opensc-tool -l

┬┐Card Available?

opensc-tool -an

We can read the content?

pkcs11-tool -L

Web Browser (any kind of certificate)

in firefox preference -> privacy and security -> certificates -> security devices, you can see your device
