Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 380221
still have to specify user
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
can we modify ... erm .. something, so that you don't have to specify the
username or the password?
at the moment in gdm i have to click on me and then swipe my finger. i'd like
to just swipe my finger.
presumably, pam_thinkfinger would have to try the swipe against all the stored
prints. i guess that has impacts on security and performance. maybe it could
be configured to only test it against the <ten> most recently used fingers?
also, this requires individual modifications to each place where
username/password can be requested. but just gdm would be a great place to start.
as much as i hate to mention Vista ... Vista does this. ;-)
This is supposed to be worked on upstream eventually, but it requires reverse
engineering of the windows driver. Once upstream makes this work, I can assure I
will bring this to Fedora ASAP.
