It would be nice to have a GUI app to manage fingerprint reader on Solus.
OpenSource (GPL)
I'm interested because I bought a laptop with a fingerprint reader, I think @ikey too

This package relies on fprind as a dependency for installation. Getting this software working ahead of the fprintd wouldn't make much sense, as fingerprint-gui wouldn't install, nor could it function without all of it's dependencies installed.

Why is this being triaged outside of the triage team?

@Crux161 anyway, it's the task of the solus maintainer to add the missing depends

Waiting age requirement because nothing else does this.

Would like to have this feature as well. Using ThinkpadT450:

I would like this feature too, really want to use my finger print scanner...

This requires a few Qt4 dependencies, which have now been deprecated. Also hasn't been updated since 2016, doesn't seem to be getting a Qt5 port anytime soon. Perhaps close?

I guess we need to stick to the gnome control center implementation and perhaps hope that plasma adds such support in a coming update.

The GNOME implementation has no documentation whatsoever, that I could find. Not sure how it would work out.

Maybe adding the fingerprinting deamon as a build dep for the control center? Otherwise one could probably contact the maintainer of the controll center on Fedora.
Here is a link to the package:
