I am using Ubuntu 19.10 in Asus X510UN. Using the lsusb command I can't find Fingerprint Device, and it's even showing no device found in fprintd-enroll. I have built-in fingerprint reader in my touchpad.

Is your device on this list? https://fprint.freedesktop.org/supported-devices.html

I see a lot of elantech devices on the list that are fprintd-enroll supported.

Other options instead of fprint look like fingerprint-gui https://launchpad.net/~fingerprint/+archive/ubuntu/fingerprint-gui

Which supports these devices: https://fprint.freedesktop.org/supported-devices.html

Or thinkfinger which is only think pads: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Integrated_Fingerprint_Reader#Software_support

I have a Lenovo L380 and am still looking for a package that supports my Synaptics fingerprint reader. I'm kind of a newbie myself so I'm still learning things but that is where I would start looking.

  • If you can get lsusb to list your fingerprint you may be able to add a driver request to fdprint here: gitlab.freedesktop.org/libfprint/libfprint/… – Lucas Johnson Nov 2 at 0:06
