Bug Description

According to you patch pcsc-lite to add:

I confirm (as Debian maintainer of pcsc-lite and also upstream author) that this patch is useless.
You can remove the patch and directly use the Debian package.

This bug was fixed in the package pcsc-lite - 1.5.3-1ubuntu1

pcsc-lite (1.5.3-1ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian (LP: #378309). Remaining changes:
    - Move runtime libraries to /lib, for the benefit of wpasupplicant.
  * Drop /var/run/pcscd creation in init script; the daemon seems to take
    care of this itself and I can't reproduce the original problem that
    prompted this Ubuntu-specific change (LP: #240195).

pcsc-lite (1.5.3-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release

pcsc-lite (1.5.2-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * debian/rules: use symbolic links instead of copy to update config.sub and
    config.guess as suggested in /usr/share/doc/autotools-dev/README.Debian.gz
    Tries to limit difference with the Ubuntu package
  * Standards-Version: 3.7.3 -> 3.8.1
   - add support of noopt and parallel options in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
   - resynch pcscd.init with /etc/init.d/skeleton

pcsc-lite (1.5.2-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
  * debian/pcscd.postinst: do not use an absolute path for update-reader.conf
    lintian warning: command-with-path-in-maintainer-script
  * debian/control: update Build-Depends: for debhelper
