Make sure you have one of the supported finger scanners. You can check if your device is supported by checking this list of supported devices. To check which one you have, type

lsusb

I have Dell Vostro 3450 with:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 138a:0011 Validity Sensors, Inc. VFS5011 Fingerprint Reader

By the way for Dell i found this link, you could try it:
