Im in the process of developing an application which makes use of fingerprint data.

I have done a bit of research and found the HOWTO: Fingerprint reading in Ubuntu with fprint (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...nt+api&page=11) and had a few questions:

  • Is this the most up-to-date way of dealing with this type of situation?
  • Will fprint give access to the fingerprint data (i.e. i'm not trying to log in with a fingerprint reader)?
  • Are there specific readers which work or are more suitable to this sort of problem?

If fprint is not suitable are there other ways in which this could be achieved?

Any direction would be greatly appreciated.
