Well since I recently chucked Windows7 from my laptop, I have been wanting to get my fingerprint scanner to work. I have had very little success in finding any good info on this issue. I am almost convinced that there are no drivers for the scanner. I like using this scanner for logins, yes I am lazy like that, I do enough typing as it is.
Has anyone had any success installing working drivers for finger print scanner?
This is a Lenovo Ideapad V570 - (do not know the other numbers) , i5 core Intel, 6 gigs, and in my opinion a wonderful Linux machine.
Here is the lsusb output:
- rabbit@Lenovo-V570:~$ - Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub - Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub - Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp.

2nd from the bottom is the problem.
Edit: Also it seems that there are no Linux drivers out for this scanner from what I gather, the model of scanner in the Thinkpads are different than those in the ideapads. I even checked on Ubuntu's catalog, they are all thinkpads, not ideapads, and the other thing the company lighTuning was bought out by Egistec, they seem to have put very little effort into making a Linux driver for this hardware.
