Can’t setup fingerprint


I use Silverblue on a Thinkpad X220, but I noticed that, in contrast to Fedora, I can’t setup my fingerprint reader. Am I missing a package? If so, why isn’t it installed by default? Cheers.


So, i suspect the first missing package might be fprintd. It is not installed on my laptop, but that’s core to having fingerprint working. I would suggest to start here and see how it go. I can’t do much testing since my laptop with a fingerprint reader is not the one with silverblue.


Yeah, tried fprint and it worked! Though I have some issues logging in with it, but it was always a bit buggy…


sounds like we need to get that package included in the comps for workstation. Who can help make that happen?


Hm, though I celebrated too soon… I can set up my fingerprint, but I can’t log in/unlock with it.
