I have a Dell Precision5550 with Ubuntu 18.04 preinstalled. I wanted to get the fingerprint reader working, so after browsing the forums I installed fingerprint-gui. However, that application did not find my fingerprint reader nor does it show up when I run lsusb or lspci.

However, VMware player seems to detect it whenever I open a virtual machine. I get a popup stating that it's a Shenzhen Goodix fingerprint reader.

Does anyone know how I can verify that Goodix is the correct reader I have on my device and, if so, how to get it up and running?
