Toshiba Portégé & Authentec AES2501
My main laptop is a Toshiba Portégé R205. This uses an Authentec AES2501 fingerprint reader. I think there may have been an "a" version and a "b" version of this:
Anyway, the Portégé is not listed in the link to "supported devices" at the start of this thread. In fact, there's only one Toshiba in that list, but, the AES2501 is listed more than any other device (in a couple of Fujitsu-Siemens machines, a Lenovo, and a whole bunch of HP machines). Can anyone tell me whether this means:
A) It is likely the AES2501 in my Toshiba will work with Ubuntu.
B) It's impossible to say whether the AES2501 in my Toshiba will work with Ubuntu or not.
I'd love to install some flavour of Xubuntu, Lubuntu or Peppermint on that R205, since it's by far the laptop I use the most.
Any help would be greatly appreciated (and you'll probably also get straight into heaven for being nice to me when the time comes)!
