I followed this post: How to enable finger printer with Thinkpad X230 and tried to install software support for my fingerprint reader. But the software does not find it.

This is the message when i want to setup the Fingerprint Reader:

"ThinkPad-X230-Tablet:~$ fprintd-enroll list_devices failed: No devices available" Do you know ho to fix this issue?

And here is the result from lsusb:

I hope you can help me. Thanks a lot.

Exactly the same device in this question. Thinkwiki.org lists it as unsupported under Linux. It's discussed in this development thread. –  gertvdijk Dec 19 '12 at 23:55

The answer in that article is for the x220. I have a x230 and fprint does not support yet the upek device used in it. So I guess it's waiting until they include support for it.

The fprint library has been updated to support the finger print reader in the x230.

http://askubuntu.com/a/236793/99751 here, i've solved it... sorry for the very late response.

I think It actually works out of the box in newer versions of Ubuntu.
