An electronic identification ("eID") is an electronic identification solution of citizens or organizations, for example in view to access benefits or services provided by government authorities, banks or other companies. Apart from online authentication many eICs also give users the option to sign electronic documents with a digital signature.

Install the chrome-token-signingAUR, qdigidocAUR and qesteidutilAUR packages.

chrome-token-signingAUR 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 cannot login from Firefox with your ID-card you should install esteidfirefoxpluginAUR.

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.
