    Question Fingerprint reader on Lenovo Thinkpad X1

    Hi all

    I have 32-bit Ubuntu 11.04 Natty on a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 with fingerprint reader. The fingerprint reader seems to work fine with "fprint_demo" and I can authenticate OK when running "sudo echo HELLO" from terminal.

    However, when I attempt to actually login to Ubuntu with this setup, I get a message in the login screen saying "Could not find suitable fingerprints matched to available hardware".

    I found a related post on this problem:

    I *do* have my home directory encrypted... so the question is, can I still use fingerprint authentication for login? Has anyone succeeded in this case?

    Cheers
    JP
