Lenovo T510 - Fingerprint reader

Hi Everyone,

I recently moved from Ubuntu to openSuse and am having a bit of fun getting used to it all.

I was wondering if anyones managed to get the fingerprint reader working on their openSuse. I found a couple of sets of guidelines for different distros in linux but couldn’t follow them through all the way.

Was hoping someone else has already crossed that bridge.

I have a Lenovo SL500 but did not get further than fingerprint scanning with fingerprint-gui. I built RPM packages for the gui in home:queden if you should need them.

As far as I know, fingerprinting will only work for KDM/GDM login, there is no further implementation (kwallet would be a useful one…).
