    Shenzhen goodix fingerprint reader driver not available for Ubuntu

    I have a Dell Vostro 3480 laptop which was recently purchased. I initially installed windows 10 in it and there were no issues with drivers in it. Being a supporter of copyleft movement and open source softwares, I wanted to explore Ubuntu so i recently installed Ubuntu 20.04 in this system. Everything works fine apart from the fact that Ubuntu is not recognising my Fingerprint reader. The details of the driver are as follows (as shown by the Hardinfo System information):
    Shenzhen Goodix Technology Co.,Ltd. Fingerprint Reader
    Vendor Id : 0x27c6
    Product id : 0x5301

    Please help me find the required driver or if there is a way to use the windows 10 driver in ubuntu.

    Welcome.

    No, you can't use the Windows 10 driver.

    This post may help as well. The 3rd and 4th repos are specific to the XPS 9300. You may be able to find your model if you dig around in the repos.
