Glad this has been requested, actually. My new laptop (set to turn up on Tuesday) has a fingerprint scanner, and this is one of the things
I intend to get working.

Did you ever get around to looking into this?

@Crux161 Do not triage issues. Leave that to the triage team.

I've updated D1657 for the libfprint dependency, all other dependencies are satisfied. If that gets accepted I could take on both libfprint and fprintd. Have two laptops with compatible sensors to test on.

Looks like it is possible to use fingerprints in Gnome shell, perhaps it could be integrated as well?

Might already be set up, just curious 🙂

Seems as if it's not by default, but want to look into it. Fedora has it implemented, should work for Budgie and GNOME I think.

As I use a dual boot Windows 10 / Solus on my Xiaomi Air 13, I can see how fast and convenient the fingerprint unlocking / auth system is...
Please give us some good news ;)
