Update: this has been updated for 11.10, check it out here.
This is more complicated than it should be, for no real reason. I like my eToken, and have been trying for a good year to get it working on 64-bit Linux. Today, I sat down, started from scratch, and nutted it out. The following 3-step procedure should be all that’s needed to get it working.
- Install 11.04 amd64. Now, even though SAC amd64 is supposed to be amd64, they lied, and it ships with i386 binaries that just happen to work on amd64. So you’ll need to prep your x86_64 system with i386 goodness, by using: [code]sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libhal1 opensc pcscd[/code]
- Note that I said libhal1, in DIRECT CONTRADICTION to SafeNet’s user guide. if you don’t, you’ll see things pop up in /var/log/syslog like [code]pcscd: dyn_unix.c:37:DYN_LoadLibrary() /usr/lib/pcsc/drivers/aks-ifdh.bundle/Contents/Linux/libAksIfdh.so: libhal.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory[/code]
- Download the SafeNet Authentication Client for Linux 8.0. In theory you should have a support agreement with SafeNet to download this, but you CAN find it on Google, including from SafeNet themselves (hint: try SAC instead of the full spelling). Install it with [code]dpkg -i SafenetAuthenticationClient-8.0.5-0_amd64.deb[/code]
- Finally, you’ll need the 32-bit libpcsclite1. Simply run:
dpkg -x libpcsclite1_1.7.2-2ubuntu2_i386.deb libpcsclite1-i386
sudo cp libpcsclite1-i386/lib/* /lib32
So there you go. If you add the /usr/lib/libeTPkcs11.so to Firefox and Thunderbird, you should see your certificates. If you run PKIMonitor, you should be able to modify your eToken.
For a quick verification, run [code]pkcs11-tool --module /usr/lib/libeTPkcs11.so -L[/code], and you should see your eToken.
Also, good-bye Windows XP. This was the last thing preventing me from using Ubuntu on a daily basis, and now you’ve been completely replaced.
