Re:How To: Configure X1 Carbon Gen 7 on Debian (FingerPrint+4G Modem)

2020-04-25, 1:55 AM

Having exactly this issue: $fprintd-enroll

Using device /net/reactivated/Fprint/Device/0

failed to claim device: Open failed with error: The driver encountered a protocol error with the device.

 

Syslog:

Apr 25 04:48:37 yo-ThinkPad-X1-Carbon-7th systemd[1]: fprintd.service: Succeeded.

Anyone found a solution for this one?

I also had that issue.. and now I don't.. so I guess I fixed it. Tried a few things, but what I think fixed it was using the steps from somewhere in this thread:

 

```

fwupdmgr enable-remote lvfs-testing

fwupdmgr get-devices

fwupdmgr refresh

fwupdmgr get-updates

fwupdmgr update

fwupdmgr disable-remote lvfs-testing

```

Re:How To: Configure X1 Carbon Gen 7 on Debian (FingerPrint+4G Modem)

Hi,

 

I've tried to update my X1 firmwares with lvfs, but I keep getting this error :

 

Failed to update metadata for lvfs-testing: '48A6D80E4538BAC2' is not a valid signature

 

I don't know how to fix this. I know that this is quite of a side topic but since it's required to make the fingerprint reader work

I'm asking here to see if anyone has already met this issue.

 

Thanks guys for any input.

It looks like either LVFS server error or the latest version of fwupd config wrong because I found :    

 

https://cdn.fwupd.org/downloads/firmware-testing.xml.gz

 

does not exist.  You might need manually download firmware and save it to file:///usr/share/fwupd/remotes.d/ instead, A useful reference might be:

 

https://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2019/02/14/using-fwupd-and-updating-firmware-without-using-the-lvfs/

 

Or, try to downgrade fwupd.

Result on a X1Extreme Gen2: After firmwareupdate (as described) and installation of fprintd (comes with openSUSE Tumbleweed) the scanner worked like a charm:

 

docb@X1E:~> fprintd-enroll docb

Using device /net/reactivated/Fprint/Device/0

Enrolling right-index-finger finger.

Enroll result: enroll-stage-passed

Enroll result: enroll-remove-and-retry

Enroll result: enroll-stage-passed

Enroll result: enroll-stage-passed

Enroll result: enroll-stage-passed

Enroll result: enroll-stage-passed

Enroll result: enroll-stage-passed

Enroll result: enroll-stage-passed

Enroll result: enroll-completed

docb@X1E:~> fprintd-list docb

found 1 devices

Device at /net/reactivated/Fprint/Device/0

Using device /net/reactivated/Fprint/Device/0

Fingerprints for user docb on Synaptics Sensors (press):

- #0: right-index-finger

docb@X1E:~> fprintd-verify

Using device /net/reactivated/Fprint/Device/0

Listing enrolled fingers:

- #0: right-index-finger

Verify result: verify-match (done)

 

There was actually a nice fingerprint-gui, https://github.com/maksbotan/fingerprint-gui works with qt5, but that seems to work only with libfprint 1.0 (and not with the latest 1.90.x). Is anyone aware of a fingerprint-gui that is still maintained?

X1 Extreme Gen.2 running openSUSE Tumbleweed
T520 (Tumbleweed as well) ...and some older ThinkPads

Thank you very much for your answer. I'll give a try to both of your proposals.

I have found another way which seems to work. I have used gnome-software which is able to download the firmwares.

I have just successfully updated the UEFI and the Thunderbolt controller this way. But I assume the fingerprint was already on the latest version

since it didn't propose an update for it.

As a note - the fingerprint firmware is finally listed as stable in LVFS. If you do an update you should pick it up.

• SAMSUNG MZVLB256HBHQ-000L7 has no available firmware updates

• Touchpad has the latest available firmware version
