P53 fingerprint on linux

2019-10-22, 16:35 PM

Hello

 

According to this: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/p53ug_en.pdf#page=99&zoom=100,0,110 the ThinkPad P53 officially support Ubuntu. Mine came with windows but I installed ubuntu 18.04 on a secondary Disck.

 

The problem is the fingerprint reader is not working, the device is not detected. I tried on fedora 30 with the same result.

 

Is there any way to fix this?

 

Thanks

 

MOD: Moved to Ubutnu area

Just heard today that Ubuntu does not plan to support libfprint 2.0 that this machine will need until 20.04 release.  It will also require a firmware update if you download that library from the git hub project
