    Hi,
    type:
    Code:
    sudo lsusb
    and visit this pages: Unsupported devices and supported devices. And even more try to explore Fprint wiki.

    With regards.

    My computer does have,
    5 usb ports, 1 hdmiii, 1 vga and 1394 port...
    i did see AuthenTec in unsupported page that u had..
    its using AES 2810

    i wonder if there is something I can do to make it work coz i did see in some other thread that people did have it working on their Dell Studio..
    (perhaps diff driver?)

    in vista, fingerprint works fine and it's called uptek touchstrip (so supported by fprint)..any solution?

    I also receive a segmentation fault on my Samsung X360, the print device appears to be a "AuthenTec AES1610". Not sure if this helps, but this was found in dmesg:

    Re: HOWTO: Fingerprint reading in Ubuntu with fprint

    So I think I found out why the segmentation faults were happening. My friend actually has the exact same computer (and print reader) as well as the same version of ubuntu, but he didn't experience any seg faults. Anyways the conclustion we came to was this:

    When scanning a print, you absolutely have to swipe your finger across the reader. Place the bottom of your "print" at the top of the reader, and drag it across (top to bottom) until the top of your "print" passes over the reader. Think of it like a scanner that scans from one end of a page to the other.

    The way I was getting the seg faults was just putting my finger on the reader and removing it. I have no idea why it seg faulted, but apparently using the print reader correctly fixed it . So all in all, everything is working fine for me now.
