Thread: activating finger print error

    Default activating finger print error

    hi hello and salam

    I installed opensuse 12.2.
    I wanted to install finger print but when i ran "finger print reader" and checked the "use fingerprint reader" it said "cannot write pam setting".
    I did :

    cd /etc/pam.d mv common-auth common-auth-old ln -s common-auth-pc common-auth

    but not worked(from SDB:Using fingerprint authentication - openSUSE).

    if you type
    /etc/pam.d # pam-config -a --fp
    it say
    ERROR: module /lib/security/pam_fp.so is not installed.
    ERROR: module /lib64/security/pam_fp.so is not installed.
    because it pam_fprint.so is installed not pam_fp.so

    this is my suggest:
    just add
    auth required pam_fprint.so
    at end of common-auth-pc in /etc/pam.d

    i use these commands for sure
    /etc/pam.d # ln -P /lib/security/pam_fprint.so /lib/security/pam_fp.so
    /etc/pam.d # ln -P /lib64/security/pam_fprint.so /lib64/security/pam_fp.so
    /etc/pam.d # pam-config -a --fp

    openSUSE 12.2 ships (probably unintentionally) GDM pam templates for various use-cases. One of them contains pam_fprint.so. pam-config checks all PAM files whether this incompatible module is active and refuses to add pam_fp.so.

    I think it was already reported, do not have bug number handy.
