Hi All!

I am running Ubuntu 8.04 (LTS) on my HP 2210b laptop. I have recently installed the fingerprint reader with libfprint for my authentec reader following the link


It worked like a breeze. However, I noticed that the sensor gets quite warmer and so is the palmrest and bottom of the box. Nothing such happens in case of the pre-loaded Windows VISTA where the sensor worked fine.

Is there a solution to it as I had to un-install the libfprint beacuse of the heating issue. Since then the heating is gone!

Any help would be welcome.
