I have a VFS471 Validity Fingerprint driver that is not detected in my HP Probook 4530s. Can someone help?
This tutorial is for validity fingerprint reader VF3000 found in Dell Vostro series laptops but might help you. http://www.tuxtrix.com/2012/05/how-to-activate-validity-fingerprint.html
Steps from above link
Before you install this, please remove the fingerprint-gui ppa
sudo ppa-purge ppa:fingerprint/fingerprint-gui
This has only been tested on amd64 system. We are awaiting packages for 32bit systems
The program is still under development, so expect a few crashes and error reports
To install the driver for the fingerprint reader, follow the instructions below:
Add this PPA to your sources:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fingerprint/fprint sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
Download the libfprint package and Install the software packages:
sudo apt-get install libfprint0 fprint-demo libpam-fprintd gksu-polkit sudo dpkg -i libfprint0_0.4.0+git20120202-0ppa1~precise2_amd64.deb`
Log out and then log back in
- Open "Users and Accounts" and then click fingerprint to register your fingerprint. See the screenshots below on how to register your fingerprint.
