Ideapad S540 Fingerprint Sensor in Linux (27c6:55b4)

2020-05-31, 3:41 AM

Now that Dell is collaborating with Goodix to support their FP sensor in Linux, we should ask Lenovo to do the same thing.

A lot of Lenovo products use Goodix sensors and none of them work in Linux.

 

Here i asked a Goodix engineer about it: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/bogerwang/libfprint/-/issues/4

 

And there is an open issue on libfprint too: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/libfprint/libfprint/-/issues/198

Me and most of my coworkers are waiting for this driver to be released. It's been a year but there is still no Linux drivers for 27c6:55b4.

I contacted Goodix developers last year, and they said they have no plan for supporting this device on Linux.

So probably there will never be a driver for it.
