Source has been removed. No "e" folder in "main"

it can still be used in firefox-esr and other firefox forks

I just realized that the new way to sign documents is via chrome-token-signing. Should this package then be removed (it does not work anyway) and wiki refreshed as needed? Or is there any special usecase for this package?
Also, esteidpkcs11loader does not seem to be needed anymore.

Firefox as of version 52 does not load the plugin anymore (manual loading through security devices does not work: says it can't load the security device). Downgrading to 51 helps.

After last `pacman -Suy` it stopped working for chrome again, now `modutil` command results in this error:

ERROR: Failed to add module "opensc-pkcs11". Probable cause : "Failure to load dynamic library".

Firefox plugin keeps working though.

firefox used to load it fine, something prob changed in v47

Indeed that fixed the issue! Is it possible to add post-install hook to PKGBUILD to check that? Or it is supposed to load on first browser startup if it works?

kevku commented on 2016-07-11 12:44

make sure opensc module is loaded in the browser
chrome: modutil -dbdir sql:$HOME/.pki/nssdb -add opensc-pkcs11 -libfile /usr/lib/ -mechanisms FRIENDLY
firefox: load under security devices, it should load it automatically but with the fast changes in browsers it might break sometimes

I always get authentication failure when trying to use the browser plugin to login somewhere. Same with chrome-token-signing plugin but at the same time local qesteidutil tool works fine and is able to read the card.

Any ideas?

@spble No, you're supposed to install packages in the "base-devel" group first to build packages. base-devel includes pkg-config. See
