I am using ubuntu 18.10 and my laptop is Lenovo Thinkpad E480. I want to use the fingerprint scanner given in my laptop for login.

But ubuntu setting/user does not show this option enter image description here

I also tried downloading Fingerprint-GUI but it is also not working enter image description here

Please help to make my fingerprint scanner work.

  • After installing Fingerprint GUI have you restarted the session? – Kulfy Dec 23 '18 at 12:45
  • I restarted my whole system – Varun Sukheja Dec 23 '18 at 12:46

The type of fingerprint reader in the E480 isn't supported outside of windows at the moment. It doesn't appear to be a standard device on the PCI or USB busses.
