had to comment out the default line
I have a problem with fprint.
Generally it works fine. But!
In gdm screen I click on my username and there is a text: "Could not locate any suitable fingerprints matched with available hardware."
So I followed troubleshooting and... it didn't work... :/
When I login with my password and do something that requires fprint it works fine /sudo something/.
I login in console /ctrl+alt+f1/ with my username and password /again could not locate fingerprint/ and switched to gdm. Clicked on my username and wow! "Scan right index finger on AuthenTec AES1610"
I swiped and logged on.
Could someone help me?
/sorry for my english/
Thanks for the HOWTO. It worked for me on Karmic x86_64 with an AES2501.
I'm fairly new to configuring PAM, and I'm having one issue I haven't resolved yet. Is there a way to specify that fprint should only be allowed to authenticate a local user? I ssh into my box over a local network sometimes, and it doesn't make much sense to have to walk into the room to scan my finger.
I believe I've seen this before, and I could add a copy of common-auth named common-auth-no-fingerprint with fprint removed for inclusion in the /etc/pam.d/sudo file, but it would make more sense to force fprint authentication to always fail for a remote user.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Thank you for this guide, it worked great.
I've got a somewhat off topic question.
If I would like to integrate this in a python program, what should I do.
What files are needed?
I looked at the gksu.py file to find out but it didn't give me much.
Thanks. It really works. Even for login, sudo and i must say it is impressive. Great job. I followed every instruction carefully and hooray it works!!!. TQ SO MUCH. Here is one of the screenshots.
Thanks for this guide it works great!
But i have a problem, i HAVE to use a fingerprint authentication now to login. Is there no way where i can use either the fingerprint authentication or the password?
