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

Install pcsclite from the official repositories and esteidfirefoxpluginAUR, qdigidocAUR and qesteidutilAUR from the AUR.

Enable pcscd.socket using systemd.

Browser plugin (web authentication & digital signatures)

The browser plugin AUR package is called esteidfirefoxpluginAUR, which also requires dependencies esteidpkcs11loaderAUR and esteidcertsAUR.

It also requires you to run the PCSC daemon, which can be installed with pcsclite from the official repositories.

Make it auto-start on demand by enabling pcscd.socket using systemd.

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.
