Talk:How to enable the integrated fingerprint reader with ThinkFinger
about fingerpring security or should we pay more for it?
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.
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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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)
- Hi, I have the same notebook, runnning ubuntu 8.04, and it seems this device isn't supported by thinkfinger, what worked for me is libfprint, the newest version. regards
