Thinkpad T580 - Synaptics Metallica MIS Touch Fingerprint Reader

2018-04-10, 9:25 AM

I have purchased a Thinkpad T580 recently and I replaced Windows with Linux. So far it looks like all devices are working except the fingerprint reader. According to the support page it has a Synaptics Metallica MIS Touch Fingerprint Reader device installed, but driver is only provided for Windows.

I visited symaptics.com and the website says I need to contact the OEM regarding hardware support.

 

Is there any plan to release a driver for Linux?

Yeah I just bought a T480 and I'm on the same boat.
I'm a little surprised that Lenovo didn't sihp the laptop with Linux friendly components or at least forced the vendors to supply linux support.
I thought there would be a fairly decent amount of T-series owners operating in Linux.

For me, on my Lenovo Thinkpad L570, runinng Ubuntu 18.04, this was the solution!:
Section "1. FPrint" on “Fingerprint readers integration” team - https://launchpad.net/~fingerprint .
First:
To find out the ID of your fingerprint reader, run the “lsusb” command in Terminal and look into the sixth (and seventh) column(s) of the output.

Thanks for your suggestion.

The device ID is 06cb:009a on my machine, but unfortunately it's not listed on the page you linked here.

Any solution for Linux (e.g. Ubuntu 18.04) support of Fingerprint device 06cb:009a in the foreseable future ?

Thanks for an update or statement Lenovo Customer support.

I have a T480 with this reader (06cb:009a) and would also very much like to see a Linux driver released!
