Packages to enable Estonian ID-card support are available from AUR (Arch User Repository) and can be installed via yaourt. This article explains how to install the official software versions by AS Sertifitseerimiskeskus.

Quick install

Long story short: install yaourt, then run as root:

 yaourt -S esteidfirefoxplugin qdigidoc qesteidutil pcsclite
 systemctl enable pcscd.socket

Browser plugin (web authentication & digital signatures)

The browser plugin AUR package is called esteidfirefoxpluginAUR, which also requires dependencies esteidpkcs11loaderAUR, esteidcertsAUR and currently a downgraded version of opensc, opensc012AUR.

It also requires you to run the PCSC daemon, which is included in official repositories.

pacman -S pcsclite

If you're running systemd, you can make it auto-start on demand with the following command:

systemctl enable pcscd.socket

If you are still using old SysV init, you have to add pcscd to the DAEMONS array in /etc/rc.conf:

DAEMONS=(... @pcscd)

Don't forget to restart Firefox after finishing.

ID-card and Digidoc utilities

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

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