    Question Fprint detects fingerprint scanner, but doesn't scan

    Hello. I'm Maika2, and I'm new to the forums. If I'm posting this in the wrong place, please let me know where it should be. Thanks.
    I've recently installed Fprintd ( which should allow me to use my built-in fingerprint scanner with Ubuntu. The scanner is compatible with Fprint, and Fprint detects the device, but when I try to enroll a fingerprint, the reader doesn't turn on, and doesn't scan. I can find the device under lsusbs, but not under hardware settings (mind you, I'm not sure if I should be able to find it under hardware).
    Any ideas or adivce is much appreciated. Thank you!
