I have a Lenovo L490, with a built-in fingerprint scanner (27c6:55b4 Shenzen Goodix Technology Co.,Ltd. Fingerprint Reader). I'm on ubuntu 20.04, and when I try to setup the fingerprint scanner for login, I get the error message: "Could not access any fingerprint readers. Please contact your system administrator for help.". Even though my account is the only one on this device. When I had ubuntu 28.04 I tried using fingerprint-gui, which could never find my fingerprint scanner. Any help?
