This note shows how to install the Estonian Electronic Identity Software on Debian 9.
ID-software – what’s this?
ID-software allows you to use your ID-card electronically – use private and governmental e-services, digitally sign documents and encrypt documents for safe transfer.
During ID-software installation 3 programs are installed into your computer: ID-card utility, DigiDoc3 client and DigiDoc3 crypto.
With ID-card utility you can check the functioning of your ID-card and certificate validity, change PIN and PUK codes. The ID-card utility window displays the ID-card owner’s data and ID-card validity data. This information is constantly visible when ID-card utility is running. ID-card utility enables you to perform actions with certificates (extend them, change and unblock PIN codes and PUK code), configure @eesti.ee email address.
Ria does not maintain the
zesti binaries any more. Therefor
I replaced the link in script to
xenial instead. Although there are no
dependency clashes on my system, I do not have the time to test a fresh install
now. Feedback is appreciated.
During the last update of
AWP to version 126.96.36.199.04.130 on my Debian 9
machine I experienced the following problem:
# apt upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Calculating upgrade...

After a recent system-upgrade
qdigidoc4 does not start and emits
the following error message::
