Fixing libcoolkey…

With my new CAC card, I found that libcoolkey.so 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
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/c/coolkey/libckyapplet1_1.1.0-7_amd64.deb
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/c/coolkey/libckyapplet1-dev_1.1.0-7_amd64.deb
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/c/coolkey/coolkey_1.1.0-7_amd64.deb
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
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/c/coolkey/libckyapplet1_1.1.0-7_i386.deb
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/c/coolkey/libckyapplet1-dev_1.1.0-7_i386.deb
wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/c/coolkey/coolkey_1.1.0-7_i386.deb
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 https://software.forge.mil/, then there is a fix in the project ‘Community CAC’ that includes libcackey which offers a fix for this as well.
