Dekart SIM card reader is a PC/SC compliant smart card reader that can be used to read SIM cards or any other type of ISO-7816 smart cards.
A Linux driver is now available, you can get it in DEB and RPM flavours (all of them are inside the archive): http://files.dekart.com/drivers/Dekart-DK38T-Linux-deb-rpm-tgz.zip

iwant simcard driver
Comment from: mobile phone [Visitor]
What does a SimCard Reader do actually? Just takes all the data from the SIM Card and makes available for viewing on tyhe internet?
I think while the idea does sound good in theory, I am a little worried that someone might get their hands on the data, so I will pass.
The data are not published on the Internet. The reader will retrieve the stuff for you, but what you do with the data afterwards is up to you.

Will this work on a MAC?

Is there an amd64 version of the Linux driver available?
Jani, if you are comfortable with compiling it from source - we can give it a try. A binary is not available at the moment, and for now we are quite loaded with other tasks so I cannot promise that it will be ready soon.
Paul, a Mac driver is not available, though the device itself is OSX friendly. As in the case above, the driver has to be built for that platform.
Are you just asking because you are looking for something to tinker with? Or is there a serious issue that depends on the availability of the driver?

I'm also happy with compiling the 64-bit version of the driver from source myself. We are currently working with a 64-bit Linux system and really require your reader to work in that setup as well.
Can you, please tell me where I can get my hands on the source code? I wasn't able to find it anywhere on your web site, and your gz file contained only the binaries.
Jani, here you go: httx://dl.dropbox.com/u/3258602/DKbeta/driver/driver.tar

you have listed the product with and without sim manager software. My question is, is the sofware compatible with linux?
I do understand that you have a linux driver, which is good news, but if the sim manager sofware isn't compatible can you suggest a replacement sofware?
Look forward to your reply,

forgot to ask does this sim card reader support 4G?...
Thank you in advance,
Paw, the reader has no problem with 4G cards, and SIM Manager can read them too.
SIM Manager is for Windows only. If you want it under Linux, you could try running it with WINE.
At the moment we're doing some basic work necessary for porting it to Linux - so there would not be a need in relying on WINE.
However, please note that this is not a top-priority task at the moment.

I would like to compile this to run on 64 bit linux. Where can I find the source code for download?
Joe, the link to the code is in a comment I posted earlier: dl.dropbox.com/u/3258602/DKbeta/driver/driver.tar
