Fixing libcoolkey…

By , January 24, 2011 1:49 pm

With my new CAC card, I found that was not working with Firefox correctly.  The new, 144k CAC cards do not play well with the old version of libcoolkey.  I did find that the ‘experimental’ release of libcoolkey will fix this problem, here is the fix:

amd64 (64bit)

sudo su
apt-get purge coolkey libckyapplet1 libckyapplet1-dev
dpkg -i libckyapplet1_1.1.0-7_amd64.deb libckyapplet1-dev_1.1.0-7_amd64.deb coolkey_1.1.0-7_amd64.deb

i386 (32bit)

sudo su
apt-get purge coolkey libckyapplet1 libckyapplet1-dev
dpkg -i libckyapplet1_1.0-7_i386.deb libckyapplet1-dev_1.1.0-7_i386.deb coolkey_1.1.0-7_i386.deb

A side note, if you are registered with, then there is a fix in the project ‘Community CAC’ that includes libcackey which offers a fix for this as well.

    Seems to be a typo in the script.

    Line 6 I believe should read “dpkg -i libckyapplet1_1.1.0-7_” instead of “dpkg -i libckyapplet1_1.0-7_”

    Thanks though for posting the fix. I was not looking forward to messing with cackey.

    Fixed, thanks for the keen eye. Back to Basic Traing, complacency kill, attention to detail, etc.

    Would love to get my hands on 64bit, but cant find it anywhere and cannot enter site.

    Could please someone send it to me?

    Great blog though.
