Testing, NormalPublic

Description

Although the list of readers is very helpful, we should eventually provide a dropdown combo box to select the reader. Not as important as the list but should be done as time permits.

Configuration dialog with reader-port drop down:

  • The first entry Default reader will simply remove the reader-port option.
  • The last entry Custom entry allows the user to enter an arbitrary value. It also preserves the currently configured value in case the configured reader is currently unplugged.
  • The other entries list the currently available readers (as reported by scdaemon).

The first reader is a GnuK which has a nice USB device serial number. The other two are the reader that is built-in in my ThinkPad and a YubiKey. Both readers lack a USB device serial number which makes it difficult to know which reader to select. Moreover, I think it will make it impossible to select a specific YubiKey in case two identical YubiKeys are inserted because both YubiKeys will have identical reader IDs. I guess the users will have to resort to the numerical port number.

What should Kleopatra do?
