Thread: Requiring password on bootup, fingerprint logon

  1. #1

    Default Requiring password on bootup, fingerprint logon

    Hi guys,

    I've finally made the move of getting rid of Windows Vista on my HP 8510w laptop and installing openSUSE 11.4. I first installed Ubuntu, but IMHO nothing comes close to openSUSE

    Everything is working fine, it even detected the fingerprint reading pad.

    I have two questions though and I can't find the answer on the web.

    1. How do I require the user to type a password with logon?
    2. If I enable the fingerprint reader, it does not allow me to log on using only the password - any ideas?

    Thank you in advance for any help in this regard.

    Maybe I don't understand
    But are you saying you want to login with both?

    Sorry to tell you this is a quite old bug which is still not fixed in OpenSuse 12.2 - see:

    Using a ThinkPad X61 tablet, it's still not fixed in opensuse 12.3 either, though at least in 12.3 don't have to click OK to use fingerprint.
