Hi !

Same probleme here with a Lenovo B570 , at least it's not 1c7a:0603 which is the fingerprint reader certified by ubuntu : http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/catalog/make/usb:1C7A .

It seems to be 0bda:0139 then ...

It is . RealTek sent me a driver for this Vid/pid but I haven't tested it yet.

It's available here : http://ubuntuone.com/p/153B/

Works perfectly on the 16F2!

Really simple install, just read the readme

extract to HDD, open terminal and navigate to folder.

make
sudo make install
sudo depmod


reboot

Thank you so much!

Works perfectly on my MSI 16f2 (16F231-004) with Ubuntu 11.04. Only hitch is that I had to go root to do make, not just sudo make.

Thanks a whole lot. Now everything works.

Hi, my SD card reader isn't working and I'd like to fix that.

DOt-Borg : Could you change the thread subject to 'Realtek USb Card Reader driver 0bda:0139 ' ?

Would be easier for people to find it

This worked for me, thanks :)

At first I had a problem: I couldn't write files to my memory card, but the card was just messed up. I formatted it, and then it worked fine.

Thank you so much! A simple compile and my cardreader works (:

That's on a G470 by the way (0bda:0139).

Great ! This realtak driver is currently being added in the kernel Tree, so maybe for 12.04.

Hi RZR , good to see you here :-)

Actually the module is now included in 3.0.0-12 on ubuntu 11.10, so you should see it in Debian as well I guess ?
