Notes: Shared instructions amongst different eID cards (card readers, pcsc), different mostly in middleware and browser plugins. Merge with Belgian eID card reader. (Discuss in Talk:Estonian ID-card#)

Packages to enable Estonian ID-card support are available from the Arch User Repository. This article explains how to install the official software versions by AS Sertifitseerimiskeskus.

Quick install

1. Install pcsclite from the official repositories and chrome-token-signingAUR, qdigidocAUR and qesteidutilAUR from the AUR.

2. Enable pcscd.socket using systemd.

Web authentication & digital signatures

chrome-token-signingAUR package contains Native Messaging host for Google Chrome/Chromium and Firefox and it is the modern way of doing authentication and digital signatures on the web.

For Google Chrome and Chromium you also will probably want to run esteid-update-nssdb script that enables TLS client authentication in the browser.

If you still can't login from Firefox with your ID-card you should install esteidfirefoxpluginAUR.

ID-card and Digidoc utilities

The ID-card utility packages are qesteidutilAUR and qdigidocAUR, with dependencies libdigidocAUR and libdigidocppAUR.

These applications will automatically appear in your application menus. You can also start from command line with qdigidocclient and qesteidutil.
