    There is also fingerprint GUI and ThinkFinger (depending on your system). Have a look at: https://launchpad.net/~fingerprint to see if your system is supported by one of these other solutions.

    Code:
    lsusb
    will get you the device codes you need.

    Are you using Ubuntu 11.04 or later? The fingerprint reader support is broken in these releases due to PAM issues, which we're shooting to have resolved in time for 12.04 LTS.
