Then when i did make i faced tons of errors. What the correct way of installing ACR38 Cardreader drivers in ubuntu?

Juste use the apt-get to install the driver: sudo apt-get install pcscd libccid


I had to do

sudo apt-get install libacsccid1

acsscid is a project that provides a driver for the ACR38

After restarting pcscd, it picked up the driver and I could use the reader.
