Re: Validity Fingerprint Reader Linux

Out of curiosity, is there any Linux greeter that lets you use a fingerprint reader instead of a password, like Windows does?

Re: Validity Fingerprint Reader Linux

Once libfprint supports it, you just need this PAM module to get it working in any password prompt (including greeters, sudo's or desktop fields).
