Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 336181
pam_thinkfinger sometimes not used
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:20:12 EST
Description of problem:
After resuming a machine the screensaver password dialog sometimes doesn't offer
the use of the fingerprint reader (indicated by the change of the message to
"Password or swipe finger". Pressing cancel and trying again usually works.
Maybe the dialog should wait a bit longer for the device to get online.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
pretty much always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.get laptop with fingerprint reader (mine are Thinkpads)
3.resume (maybe after a waiting a bit)
Just "Password:" in message, i.e., pam_thinkfinger not used
"Password or swipe finger:"
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Since nobody cared for this in the lifetime of F9 and since it seems to work with F10 I'm closing the bug.
