Have you tried to use the reader?
Does it work for you?

The problem is in the reader firmware. Maybe Precise Biometrics has fixed
the problem in a recent version of the reader.

There is no guideline to setup the reader. Just install the needed software
and connect your reader.

The article "Level 1 smart card support on GNU/Linux"
could help.
