I recently purchased and received my Nitrokey Storage USB drive.
My operating system is Linux Mint. I read the installation documentation, I installed the libraries by typing “sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libccid” into the CLI.
I downloaded the Linux Nitrokey AppImage and successfully wrote it as an executable file.
However, when I plug in my Nitrokey Storage USB, the app reads, “Nitrokey is not connected!”
The firmware is up to date. When I click on “About Nitrokey,” - it reads, “Nitrokey is not active.”
So, what steps am I missing?
I went on the YouTube channel and the video tutorial of the Nitrokey Storage overview does not show anything about connecting the device to the app. In the video, the app reads the user’s device and gives the user options that are not available to me since my app doesn’t connect to my device.
Furthermore, I am trying to copy highly sensitive documents from a standard USB to the Nitrokey USB.
It doesn’t allow me to copy these documents because it says the Nitrokey itself is “Read Only.” When I right click to change the permissions on the Nitrokey device itself, it doesn’t allow me to change the device to read, write access. Nor does it allow me to create and delete files.
