Thread: Fingerprint login not mentioned by GNOME accounts despite fprintd and fprintd-pam being installed

  1. Default Fingerprint login not mentioned by GNOME accounts despite fprintd and fprintd-pam being installed

    Hi,

    On Fedora I didn't need to do any configuration for GNOME to register my fingerprint reader and allow me to use it to authenticate. On openSUSE Tumbleweed it doesn't. This is what I see in user accounts on Tumbleweed:



    On Fedora fingerprint login is mentioned here. I have installed all fingerprint-related packages that came up with:

    Code:
    zypper se fprint
    and the results were:

    Code:
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    
    S  | Name               | Summary                                                   | Type   
    ---+--------------------+-----------------------------------------------------------+--------
    i+ | fprintd            | D-Bus service for Fingerprint reader access               | package
       | fprintd-devel      | Development files for fprintd                             | package
    i  | fprintd-lang       | Translations for package fprintd                          | package
    i+ | fprintd-pam        | PAM module for fingerprint authentication                 | package
       | fprintd-pam-32bit  | PAM module for fingerprint authentication                 | package
       | libfprint-devel    | Library for fingerprint reader support (developer files)  | package
       | libfprint-examples | Library for fingerprint reader support (example programs) | package
    i  | libfprint0         | Library for fingerprint reader support                    | package
       | libfprint0-32bit   | Library for fingerprint reader support                    | package
    I didn't install the -32bit package or -devel, -examples as unless I am mistaken I do not think I need them and I don't feel the need to waste disk space today.

    Thanks for your time,

    I found https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Using_fi...authentication but it is outdated ThinkFinger is no longer in the repos. Tried manually compiling and installing it but a YaST modules for it were required but weren't in the repos.
