Has anyone got thinkfinger to work with pam in Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex? If so, how did you configure /etc/pam.d/common_auth?

about fingerpring security or should we pay more for it?

GDM

Howdy.

With latest versions of GDM, PAM and ThinFinger you may experience a GDM segfault when using the Face Browser to select a user. This stops you from using the aforementioned software combination to log in to a pure tablet system. That is, you're going to need a keyboard to type the username. Please see this bug report and contribute if you can.

Problem

Hello! I have Lenovo R61i and Debian 4.0 (sid). I have done all what was in this article, but when I do:

pokorski@debian:~$ sudo tf-tool --acquire

the terminal is writing:

ThinkFinger 0.3 (http://thinkfinger.sourceforge.net/) Copyright (C) 2006, 2007 Timo Hoenig <thoenig@suse.de>

Initializing...USB device not found.

I read manuals and howtos but I can't install it on my R61i. On M$ Windows biometric reader worked correctly. Can anybody help me? Sorry for my English (I'm Polish)
