Re:Support for the 06cb:009a fingerprint reader

The T480s is a great laptop!  A working fingerprint reader would be the icing on the cake.  Especially since the T series are such solid machines that last for a long time.

Why don't you try my pam module? It is a very simple module.

 

https://github.com/tester1969/pam-validity and works for my T480

I couldn't use your PAM extension with Arch for some reason (it was crashing immediately when PAM tried to load it and I was a little too lazy to dig deeper), but actually...

With python-validity I could make the fingerprint reader work! The effect is decent, I unlock the computer mostly successfuly in 2-3 seconds. The only issue there is that the python-validity service has to be restarted after bringing it back from suspend or hibernation. The hook was easy to setup, but sometimes when I try to unlock it too fast after opening the lid, it can fail for the first time. Too bad we won't get the official support for the thing though.

Hi. I also made the fingerprint scanner work with python-validity. I'm not very good at how device drivers work, but how is it that this works with python-validity and not with fprintd?

python-validity works with Arch Linux: link ==> https://github.com/uunicorn/python-validity . There is more than installation in that link. Check if the service was able to start etc.

 

after enrolling fingerprint update these files in etc/pam.d  (thanks to arch wiki). 

 

system-local-login :: Common irrespective display manager and for tty and system logins: 

auth      sufficient pam_fprintd.so

 

for sddm:

in file sddm include this line :: 

auth    sufficient   pam_fprintd.so

auth    sufficient   pam_unix.so try_first_pass likeauth nullok

 

for kde lock screens ::

in file kde ::

auth    sufficient   pam_unix.so try_first_pass likeauth nullok

auth    sufficient   pam_fprintd.so
