View Full Version : [ubuntu] Getting a Lenovo R400 fingerprint reader in Ubuntu
March 30th, 2009, 09:14 AM
I'm using a Lenovo R400 laptop with Jaunty beta installed, and I really want to get the fingerprint reader to work. I tried following the instructions here (http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_enable_the_fingerprint_reader_with_ThinkFin ger), but when it came to typing tf-tool --acquire I got the message "Initializing...USB device not found." Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm at the same point too. Still looking for an answer, but I have a feeling there's either a little more configuration missing or its just plain not supported yet.

Hmmm, that's irritating. Oh well, I suppose I shall have to wait...:-|

Apparently the R400s are using a newer authentec fingerprint reader. Support is in the works, but obviously not here yet.
