It might help if you tell us the model of laptop.

Well, there are a lot of packages in repos dealing with fingerprint readers. You'll have to try it and see if there are any issues, because I don't know whether it will or not. I'd suggest running a LiveUSB or LiveCD and seeing whether or not it will work.

The only thing I see in the software center is fprint .

Yes give fprint a try. Works well on my Thinkpad T60 (this of course is an older laptop. YMMV).
