    Works perfect, even in Lucid. Thanks System76.

    It doesn't work for me on my PanP4n running Maverick. It accepts my fingerprint with a check mark and "OK", but then nothing happens for several minutes (the "Next" button is grayed out.) Then a dialog pops up with the message that the fingerprint wasn't saved.

    It should be asking you to swipe your finger again. For me, it asked 3 times (each time giving the check mark and "OK."). It works perfectly on my PanP5.

    I have 10.10 installed on my panp5 laptop and while I can successfully scan my fingerprint and save it on the disk still have to enter my password for "sudo" commands.

    Have you logged out and logged back in? If not, that's what's holding you back.

    Re: Fingerprint Readers Working in 10.10!

    It works for me too. I swipe my finger, it logs my user in, but then I get a dialog that says "Enter password to unlock login keyring". Then I enter my password. It is mildly redundant, I would like to finger swipe to login and not have to enter my password.
