The Linux operating system has a generic driver to communicate with NFC hardware. However, this generic driver is outdated and interferes with current NFC hardware communication.
Run the following command in a terminal in order to permanently disable this generic driver.
- echo “blacklist pn533_usb” | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-libnfc.conf
This will add the PN533_USB driver to a “blacklist” that is checked during system start-up and will prevent the driver from being loaded into the Linux kernel.
