I need help getting my fingerprint reader to work on my new thinkpad. I have installed fprintd, fprintd-pam, and libfprint0. I cannot add the fingerprints in gnome settings, so I tried via command line with
fprintd-enroll --finger right-index-finger alex
but this returns, “list_devices failed: No devices available.” In yast hardware info I believe the fingerprint reader shows up as
67: USB 00.0: 0000 Unclassified device [Created at usb.122] Unique ID: POWV.8BKcmShSpj3 Parent ID: k4bc.2DFUsyrieMD SysFS ID: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-9/1-9:1.0 SysFS BusID: 1-9:1.0 Hardware Class: unknown Model: "Synaptics Unclassified device" Hotplug: USB Vendor: usb 0x06cb "Synaptics, Inc."

Does anyone know how to get this to work?
