Topic: SCM3712 + 1.7.0


I have an SCM3712 with external antenna (PCB date is 31 aug 2010). I am trying to make it work on my laptop running ubuntu 12.04 64bit that has previously worked with the ACR122U. Procedure:

1. check device is found by usb:

~$ lsusb
Bus 006 Device 004: ID 04e6:5594 SCM Microsystems, Inc.

2. Add device ID to /etc/udev/rules.d/42-pn53x.rules file

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e6", ATTRS{idProduct}=="5594", MODE="0777", GROUP="plugdev", SYMLINK+="nfc"

3. Add my user to plugdev group (already done from before)

4. Reboot for all changes to take effect

~$ reboot

5. Test nfc-list command

~$ nfc-list
nfc-list uses libnfc 1.7.0
No NFC device found.

No cigar :-(

I read that another user had made it work on this forum (can't post a link but search for SCM3712) So what am I missing?
