===fprint===

See [[How to enable the integrated fingerprint reader]].
For some time various projects provided support for various readers. That work mostly been unified under the [http://reactivated.net/fprint/wiki/Main_Page fprint] library, and thus libfprint and libpam-fprint (which provides authentication via PAM) are the best way to go, and in the meantime included by default in most Linux distributions. However, it seems that lately this project has stalled, and no support for newer chips has emerged for some time.

===Thinkfinger===
+
Alternatively, the original Thinkfinger project is at http://thinkfinger.sourceforge.net. It only provides support for the 1st generation reader, and has not been updated since 2007; see the [[How to enable the fingerprint reader with ThinkFinger]] for detailed instructions. It is also in Debian Lenny. This integrates seamlessly with PAM and doesn't produce a tacky graphical prompt.

{{HINT|If you've followed the instructions and "tf-tool --verify" works, but nothing else does, make sure that the "uinput" module is loaded.}}

===Fingerprint GUI===

Feb 2011: The following works as smoothly on Ubuntu and T410s: https://launchpad.net/~fingerprint/+archive/fingerprint-gui

==Binary Only==

A closed source driver for the UPEK device is available.  It interfaces to the hardware as a user-space USB driver through {{path|/proc/bus/usb|}} and provides a BioAPI 1.10 device, which can then be interfaced to pam for authentication by user programs.  The driver can be downloaded from [http://www.upek.com/support/downloads/linux/ http://www.upek.com/support/downloads/linux/]; see the [[How to enable the fingerprint reader|corresponding HOWTO]] for detailed instructions. It however tends to be less stable than the above opensource drivers.

IBM Integrated Fingerprint Reader

Integrated Fingerprint Reader

IBMs second generation of T42 models (released in Autumn 2004) was the first to feature an integrated fingerprint reader. Various models since then have had this feature, actually implemented with a number of different devices, all of which appear on the USB bus. Some are just scanners, others do the recognition in the device itself.

Supported by libfprint v0.6.0

138a:0090 Validity Sensors RE work for validity90 fingerprint reader, Ubuntu PPA and AUR package for WIP libfprint driver

Read more about the various models of reader on the libfprint wiki

Also check the Fingerprint-GUI PPA which has a detailed list of supported devices. Be aware this PPA includes non-free software as indicated in the About page of the project.

The UPEK device is supported by thinkfinger. Those devices and Authentec ones are supported by libfprint.

However: The fingerprint reader is an INSECURE device and gives a false sense of security! There has been quite a bit of research by a hacker named Starbug, a member of the Chaos Computer Club, Berlin, Germany. He outlined in two very good talks how to forge each and every available fingerprint sensor available at the cost of a few euros, using materials from your local hardware store, a digicam and a laser printer! Here's some links:

Remember, using fingerprints for authentication is much similar to having a password which is written on anything you touch.
