update-reader.conf - (re)generate /etc/reader.conf
update-reader.conf is a simple tool to manage /etc/reader.conf. The
PCSC daemon (pcscd) uses one configuration file for its configuration.
This makes it hard for packages to dynamically add information about
their own smart card reader drivers. To fix this update-reader.conf has
update-reader.conf attempts to fix this by generating the configuration
file from separate files which are located in /etc/reader.conf.d. All
files in that directory are assembled together to form
After generation a backup of the old file is put in
update-reader.conf will ignore files that match the following regular
(ie files with the extension .dpkg-new, .dpkg-orig, .dpkg-dist,
.dpkg-old, or whose filename end with a ~).
force update-reader.conf check if the current /etc/reader.conf is a
generated file by checking for a special tag on the first line.
If this tag is not found generation is aborted. By supplying
force as parameter only a warning is printed.
None of course! :)
