Fingerprint Scan Login


#1

My laptop has a fingerprint login scanner that worked well with Windows 10, but it hasn’t been recognized by my Linux Mate OS. Is there some way I can utilize the fingerprint login scanner?

Thanks
Bob

This should be available in 18.10 which adds support for fingerprint readers.

Thanks for you response code_exec
My version: Release 18.04.1 LTS (Bionic Beaver) 64-bit
If it should be available, what is the procedure needed to activate it?

darknet(dark net?) I went through it and found additional help, but, the bottom line? Linux has failed in addressing and supporting this very useful technology. I’d venture to say, most of us have not the time to bridge the gap.
