Hello, I have a strange problem that I haven’t been able to find anywhere here or elsewhere. I’m on Fedora 35 Silver Blue Gnome 41, and so far it’s a flawless.
I had the fingerprint reader working just fine, then decided to create a VM of Windows 11 in my Virtual Machine Manger. After getting that working, I used that instance to create a “Windows to go” image on a usb, restarted and booted up W11, updated the drivers using Frameworks own driver package. It works great!
But ever since I did that, I’ve broken the finger print scanner in Fedora. The error message I get using the GUI:
“framework” failed to claim device: GDBus.Error:net.reactivated.Fprint.Error.Already In Use: Device was already claimed
When I run:
systemctl stop fprintd.services
I’m able to start again, but this time it says “Device is disconnected”. Running it from the command line produces a similar result:
fprintd-enroll -f right-index-finger userme
Enroll result: enroll disconnected
Whats frustrating, is lsusb lists it as a device, and fprint-list userme shows I don’t have any fingerprints enrolled, so it’s clearly detecting it.
Not sure what I did wrong. I tried going back to a few versions prior at boot, and same result. What I’d like to do is completely disable it for all windows, clear the fprint data and start again. I disabled it in W11 as well, and same result. Apologies for the sloppy post; formatting is tough in this forum since there’s no preview.
