Fujitsu Lifebook P Series (P1510D) fingerprint swipe sensor does not work
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:25:59 EST
Description of problem:
Fujitsu Lifebook P Series (P1510D) fingerprint swipe sensor does not work. I
suspect this is actually because there is no driver for it, and not because
there is no software for it at a higher level, but am unsure how to check if
there is a driver for it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a Fujitsu Lifebook P Series (P1510D) with rawhide on it
2. Try to get it to realize that you're doing anything with the fingerprint sensor
It should recognize that you're trying to do something with it. Presumably,
eventually, it should be able to be used instead of a login prompt, but that's
much further down the road, I think.
no specs, no driver.. not much we can do here.
maybe someone will figure out how it works one day, but until then, we're not
going to be investing any effort into writing a driver for it.
Dunno if this is helpful, but information on doing this on a T43 is here:
Adding sgrubb to CC; Steve: do we want a tracker bug somewhere for biometric
login support in future releases?
