Description Steffen Froemer 2017-07-07 16:45:13 EDT
Created attachment 1295402 [details]
working Info.plist from Fedora 25

Description of problem:
The Cherry Smart Card Reader USB TC 1100 is not usable as Reader for smartcards, as it is not recognised by the system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
always on default RHEL-7 installation

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RHEL-7.4
2. install opensc + pcsc-lite-ccid
3. run 'opensc-tool -a'

Actual results:
$ opensc-tool -a
No smart card readers found.

Expected results:
# opensc-tool -a
Using reader with a card: Cherry Smart Card Reader USB (OKCM0031411130415593851706133826) 00 00

Additional info:
I replaced the file '/usr/lib64/pcsc/drivers/ifd-ccid.bundle/Contents/Info.plist ' with the one from upstream fedora package 'pcsc-lite-ccid-1.4.26-1.fc25.x86_64' and got it working.

dev_ack to add the USB_ID. QA just needs to do a sanity review. Since the card starts working with an updated Info.plist, we can be confident that the missing USB_ID is all that's needed. This is not a commitment to support any additional debugging on the reader since neither devel nor qa has access to the hardware.
