Re: Thinkpad T580 - Synaptics Metallica MIS Touch Fingerprint Reader

Another "me too" in order to get some attention @lenovo product management.
PLEASE, we Linux users do buy Lenovo as it has (HAD?) 100% Linux compatibility.
Don't leave us with a device we cannot fully use!

And here's another owner of a Lenovo ThinkPad T580 for this noble cause Smiley Happy

Please offer full hardware support for GNU/Linux so we can all enjoy it.
ThinkPads always stood for their outstanding quality. Please do not sully it.

Proud, yet dissapointed owner of a T480s with Linux Mint and Fingerprint Reader device:

06cb:009a Synaptics, Inc.

Lenovo needs to step up their game here and fix this, that's not acceptable for a proffesional device (hence need for security hardware) with such a high demographic using linux on it...

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 06cb:009a Synaptics, Inc.

Still does not work under Linux.

 

Lenovo, stop embarassing your most dedicated fans, i.e. developers!

After such a blow, people will migrate back to Dell, which under Linux "just works".
