I couldn't able to enable the fingerprint by Settings->Users->Authentication & Login.

When doing like above I getting error like "Could not access any fingerprint readers Please contact your system administrator for help!"

Can anyone help to enable it.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fingerprint/fingerprint-gui
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libbsapi policykit-1-fingerprint-gui fingerprint-gui
