The laptop is installed with openSUSE tumbleweed version 20220324.
- The following packages needs to be installed (at least it works having them installed):
- fprintd-lang 1.94.1
- fprintd-pam 1.94.1
- After having these packages installed you configure PAM to use the finger print scanner:
pam-config --add --fprintd
This adds the line “auth sufficient pam_fprintd.so” to the PAM file “common-auth-pc”.
- To “register” finger-prints you can use either the command line tool fprintd-enroll or the gnome dialog (Settings → Users → Fingerprint Login [Enabled] → User popup window and Button “Scan new fingerprint”).
The command line tool fprintd-enroll can be called as normal user. fprintd-list lists the already “registered” finger prints of that user.
The syntax for fprintd-enroll is:
fprintd-enroll [-f finger] [username] # […] is an optional parameter
finger needs to replaced by the register-name of the finger you like to scan: left-thumb, left-index-finger, left-middle-finger, left-ring-finger, left-little-finger, right-thumb, right-index-finger, right-middle-finger, right-ring-finger, right-little-finger. right-index-finger is the
fprintd-verify [-f finger] [username]
fprintd-verify helps to check, if the fingerprint could now be validated.
Finally the fingerprint scanner now works with the graphical login.
