I installed a fresh 18.04 on my new laptop and it does not recognize the fingerprint-reader.. I tried to install fingerprint-gui as well as fprint, they both are not able to recognize the reader..

Below is the result of running the command: lsusb

That is the fingerprint reader and Linux lack of driver to support it.
