Raspberry Pi NFC reader driver installation ACR122u

  • #akrv 

First add the following dependencies for the NFC driver and other modules

sudo apt-get install pcscd libusb-dev libpcsclite1 libpcsclite-dev dh-autoreconf

I also installed the drivers from the official website for my device.

it can be found here (disclaimer: I do not still not know if this step is required)

then install the python package with pip

sudo pip install nfcpy


now use the documentation http://nfcpy.readthedocs.io for using the nfc card with python. The python interface doesn’t use the LED notifications on the device, I have to find out how it works with the lights!
