Reset key key: IPC connect call faile

Something went wrong. The admin pin is locked.
I’m happy Nitrokey has a manual for such an

[quote]Option 2, use GnuPG 2 to reset a blocked device:

Download this file
Open a command prompt (terminal) and run "gpg-connect-agent < nitrokey-reset.txt".
In case of error  "ERR 67108983 No SmartCard daemon <GPG Agent>" please install scdaemon (e.g. "sudo apt install scdaemon").


So I downloaded the file and executed the command:

$ gpg-connect-agent < Downloads/nitrokey-reset.txt gpg-connect-agent: can't connect to the agent: IPC connect call failed
Something wrong with the agent?

$ gpg-connect-agent --version gpg-connect-agent (GnuPG) 2.0.26 Copyright (C) 2013 Free Software Foundation, Inc. License GPLv3+: GNU GPL version 3 or later <> This is free software: you are free to change and redistribute it. There is NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law.

How can I proceed?

Can your GnuPG access the device at all? Try “gpg2 --card-status”. If this works, try the option 2 described in our documentation.
