So, got most everything working a while back, decided I’d circle around on fprintd because at the time it looked like it was going to be twitchy.
Decided to ‘just try it’ this morning, for giggles, and it enrolled three fingers, no problem, and worked right off the bat.
I’m always suspicious when things ‘just work’. Am I missing a problem here?

Description: D-Bus daemon for fingerprint reader access
fprintd is a D-Bus daemon that offers libfprint functionality over the
D-Bus interprocess communication bus. By adding this daemon layer above
libfprint, various problems related to multiple applications simultaneously
competing for fingerprint readers get solved.
