4.2. Launching the Smart Card Manager UI

There are two aspects to launching the Enterprise Security Client UI. The Enterprise Security Client process must be started and it runs silently, waiting to detect any inserted smart card or token. The Smart Card Manager UI for the Enterprise Security Client opens automatically when smart cards are inserted or can be opened manually.
Initiate the Enterprise Security Client daemon (escd) from the command line:
This daemon listens silently for smart cards and opens the GUI as soon as a smart card is inserted.
To open the Smart Card Manager GUI manually, click Applications, System Tools, and then Smart Card Manager.
