The package already uses the only release available at so the package is not out- of date. If you want to use the latest git version it should be named fingerprint-gui-git, i.e. it would be another package.

@Hate9: Here's a PKGBUILD using RogueScholar's fork.

Hate9 commented on 2022-04-01 20:41 (UTC)

could we please switch to the actually-updated ?

gborzi commented on 2021-05-02 14:06 (UTC)

@PhotonX I too am running Manjaro on the laptop with the fingerprint reader. I've added the module only in /etc/pam.d/sudo. Perhaps you have the module in some other file under /etc/pam.d and this causes some trouble.

PhotonX commented on 2021-05-02 13:52 (UTC)

I'm running Manjaro on the machine in question (Arch on a different machine, where fingerprint-gui isn't in use), possibly it is something Manjaro specific... I also need to add that my fingerprint reader isn't being recognized so fingerprint-gui isn't fully configured, just installed. Not a big deal if the issue cannot be reproduced and fixed, since I cannot use it anyway. Just left the comment here in case somebody else stubles upon the same problem.

gborzi commented on 2021-05-02 13:24 (UTC)

@PhotonX I'm unable to reproduce the bug, on my PC pamac can install packages without problems.

PhotonX commented on 2021-05-02 11:16 (UTC)

I had problems with Pamac, couldn't install any package due to an "authentication error". Looks like fingerprint-gui messed something up in polkit:

Removing fingerprint-gui solved the Pamac problem.

lahwaacz commented on 2020-10-11 19:35 (UTC)

Note that Arch does not have a system group named plugdev, so creating it from an AUR package is an ugly hack which may break the system if you decide to uninstall the package, in which case the group gets removed regardless if other things still use it or not.

Why is it not replaced by some other group as pointed out in the upstream manual?

gborzi commented on 2020-08-27 13:02 (UTC)

I have adopted and updated the package. Now it relies on the libfprint-1 package which is libfprint version 1.0.

gborzi commented on 2020-08-24 12:01 (UTC)

I sort of "succeeded" in compiling this package with a (dirty?) trick. Just downgrade libfprint to 1.0 and it'll build and work. So, what is needed is a libfprint-1 package for libfprint 1.0 and change the depends accordingly. Hope it helps.

nobodywasishere commented on 2020-08-11 02:21 (UTC)

So digging into this deeper, the original repo at has been taken down, and there seem to be several copies laying around (,, and I tried myself with fixing some of the issues I was running into while compiling, and came across a post on the opensuse forums who was trying to do stuff similar to me ( There's not much I can do from here as this requires someone familiar with QT4/QT5 (I am not).

GottZ commented on 2020-07-29 14:21 (UTC)

created an upstream issue for this: sadly i don't have the time to dig into this myself right now. at least there is an issue now.

xuanruiqi commented on 2020-07-28 05:31 (UTC)

If I figure out how I could get this to build, I can adopt this package. But I would rather not adopt a broken package...

Getting the same error. @enihcam are you saying to build from source?

using the remote version of 1.0 the second time got it working - of course the levnovo flex 14's reader doesn't have a driver :)

linkeb3 commented on 2020-03-29 17:57 (UTC)

with the downgrade to 1.0 it went way past it's initial fail with 1.0 downgrade however it still failed

To use it, do sudo pacman -S downgrade then DOWNGRADE_FROM_ALA=1 downgrade libfprint and choose version 1.0

It fails to build, as a temporary workaround you can downgrade libfprint to 1.0-1 version using downgrader or downgrade.

Hi there,

I'd love it if you could add support for the Microsoft Type Cover 4 fingerprint reader to your roadmap. No rush obviously as it is a fairly new device, but I'm happy to provide any additional information you may need to assist you.

Not sure if this helps:

The two udev rules should be installed into /usr/lib/udev/rules.d instead of /etc, which is used to set or override vendor-supplied rules.

The download link has changed: Also, it looks like 1.09 was just released.

Thanks, I did not notice that the link not work any more. Package updated.

bradpitcher commented on 2013-07-16 16:59 (UTC)

OK, I see the problem. The download link in the PKGBUILD points to an html file, which works in the browser because the html has frames, but doesn't work with wget. Inspecting the source, you can find the real link: Change the first link in source in the PKGBUILD to${pkgname}-${pkgver}.tar.gz and it works! The existing md5 sum matches. Now I just need to figure out how to use the program.

deathangel908 commented on 2013-07-14 17:51 (UTC)

Help me with installing package. First time it failed with md5 summ. When I generated md5 and corrected the PKGBUILD file, the build failed with "no file or directory in" "cd ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver} " PKGBUILD line on build section. I tried to create the dir, or change the current directory up level, but still packer echoes this: ==> Starting build()...

@haagch - I added "-j1" switch to make. Hope that you all can install this package successfully.

Should be "make -j1 INSTALL_ROOT=${pkgdir}/ install" in package(). Doesn't really work with more jobs.

@Gordin - Do you mind to upgrade to the latest qt package? Please refer to this: What kind of cpu do you use? What's the `MAKEFLAGS' of your /etc/makepkg.conf file? The output of `nproc' please? Anyone else has this `-j1' issue?

Gordin commented on 2013-03-14 06:53 (UTC)

also, the make INSTALL_ROOT=${pkgdir}/ install needs a -j1 (Am I the only one who needs the -j1 there? If I don't specify it there packaging the PKGBUILD fails every time. the actual compiling works fine with multiple threads, just the make install fails on my machine)

@all - thanks for the feedback @ macman31- good idea, I'll give it a try

commented on 2013-02-25 17:47 (UTC)

@ffjia - I'm happy to help. My laptop is a Bonobo Extreme from System76, based on a Clevo P370EM. Maybe you can put an "if" in the PKGBUILD to copy the libraries from BSAPI_4.3.291Lite_SDK_for_Linux only if a 147e:2020 Upek sensor is detected ?

jacook commented on 2013-02-25 17:38 (UTC)

My version (with Upek 147e:1002) works again after the latest update. Thank you!!

arcanis commented on 2013-02-25 13:11 (UTC)

@ffjia maybe. Unfortunately, I can't remember exactly what I did.

ffjia commented on 2013-02-25 10:56 (UTC)

@macman31 - thanks dude, it's very kind of you to show us how to find the root cause of this issue. I'm not sure if my sensor has EEPROM or not, my laptop is Lenovo T410s. What's your model? @arcanis - The `post_remove()' will remove the `plugdev' group, maybe you uninstalled this package before upgrading it? For those who have 147e:2020 Upek sensor, you could install the `' manually, please refer to: and

arcanis commented on 2013-02-25 00:00 (UTC)

Hmm, but аfter removal of the patch, ше works in tty and for su. So..I don't know. Finally, it thing works do not touch it %)

arcanis commented on 2013-02-24 23:50 (UTC)

@ffjia I'm sorry, I'm fool) Maybe it didn't work because in "post_upgrade" section group plugdev are removed and created again. Thus, user is no longer part of the group. I think that I probably looked a group previously, when user was part of the group. I'm so sorry...)

commented on 2013-02-24 15:40 (UTC)

@ffjia You have to use "strace" (pacman -S strace) to list all the system calls done by the program : $ strace -f fingerprint-gui 2>&1 | grep "open" (-f : "Trace child processes as they are created", 2>&1 because strace output on stderr and we want to send it to grep, grep "open" because we only want to look at the file opening attempts, not at everything else) When selecting the "Scan/Verify" tab, you should see some "open" system calls to different files. For me, it was especially trying to open "/etc/tc.cfg", but it failed. After doing some researchs, it appear that those files (/etc/upek.cfg and the files in /var/upek_data) are only needed for EEPROMless sensors. Maybe your sensor has an EEPROM, and so it don't need those files, and so you don't have any problem because it never look at them ? Once again sorry for my crappy English...

ffjia commented on 2013-02-24 14:16 (UTC)

@all guys - sorry for the inconvenient and thanks for help. I use BSAPI_4.3.291Lite_SDK_for_Linux because I want to support 147e:2020 sensor. I myself installed this version, works just fine without "/etc/tc.cfg". $ uname -a Linux 3.7.9-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Feb 18 02:13:30 EET 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux @macman31 - How did you find this the libbsapi look for /etc/tc.cfg? Since many users found problem to use this verison, I removed BSAPI_4.3.291Lite_SDK_for_Linux, and still use the one bundled with fingerprint-gui.

commented on 2013-02-24 13:04 (UTC)

So, I also have an Upek 147e:1002. I found the problem ("ABSOpen() failed -1086 (An internal error occurred (ptlib: tfmerr -1086).)."), doing a lot of strace. It appear that the libbsapi compiled from BSAPI_4.3.291Lite_SDK_for_Linux.tar.gz search the Upek configuration file specifying the location of the scanned fingerprints in "/etc/tc.cfg" instead of "/etc/upek.cfg" It don't find the file "/etc/tc.cfg", so it fallback to the default folder, "/etc/tcstore" (instead of /var/upek_data), which don't exist, causing the error. A quick (and dirty) fix would be : cp -p /etc/upek.cfg /etc/tc.cfg With that fix, everything is working as it should. A better fix would be to use the libbsapi bundled with fingerprint-gui-1.04.tar.gz, instead of getting it from BSAPI_4.3.291Lite_SDK_for_Linux.tar.gz : it use the right configuration file, /etc/upek.cfg directly. I hope this helped ! And sorry for my English, I'm French.

arcanis commented on 2013-02-22 18:48 (UTC)

@ffjia what was added in current release? Animation and what else? BSAPI or fingerprint-gui.patch& Or both? Because sudo doesn't always work in graphical interface (KDE/awesome) %)

jacook commented on 2013-02-22 17:12 (UTC)

Yes -- for some reason, ever since upgrading a few days ago. I am having the exact same problem with the same error message. I also have the Upek 147e:1002

ffjia commented on 2013-02-22 00:11 (UTC)

@arcanis - I updated to this version myself, everything is fine to me. Your sensor id is different though. $ lsusb | grep Upek Bus 001 Device 003: ID 147e:2016 Upek Biometric Touchchip/Touchstrip Fingerprint Sensor It maybe caused by the BSAPI SDK. Anyone else encounter this problem?

@alphazo - I use KDE, so I cannot re-produce your issue. And I'm not sure why this package could break your login process, even with pure console? Does that mean you mistakenly modified pam files?

This package breaks Gnome 3.6. Impossible to start gnome-shell (Oops window) when using any DM (GDM, KDM.. or pure console). Happened on my existing platform, fresh install and also inside VM.

@chneukirchen, thanks for reminding. Adding "LIB=/usr/lib" to "qmake" seems solve the problem. After new pam hit [core], I'll update this package.

chneukirchen commented on 2012-05-05 15:39 (UTC)

With the new pam 1.1.5-3, pam modules need to go to /usr/lib/security.

Login works fine, but su and sudo continue to produce the following error: "GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)" Don't think it would be helpful, but here is my errors.log: Nov 19 11:59:25 localhost fingerprint-helper[14928]: Started. Nov 19 11:59:33 localhost pam_fingerprint-gui[14927]: ERROR: Prompting for password. Nov 19 11:59:33 localhost sudo[14927]: pam_unix(sudo:auth): conversation failed As for reporting the issue to the fingerprint-gui forum; it has already been reported but with no luck, check out: From my understanding you are using kde, could this be the reason you don't have this issue? Is it possible that this issue exists only on gnome?

@swiftgeek Could you tell me all the details? I can report this issue to the fingerprint-gui forum. Presonnally, I did not have this issue.

still not working ;( "GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)"

After upgrading my system on October the 5th, fingerprint-gui has had problems. Login works fine, but su and sudo produce the following error: GLib-GIO:ERROR:gdbusconnection.c:2270:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL) Any ideas on how to solve?

Thanks R3MU5, lol Yep, you have to enroll your fingerprint as root, I simply copy my normal user fingerprint data to /var/lib/fingerprint/root, and change the ownership. I have tested this app on gnome, everything worked fine. As for kde (which is my favorite), the unlock phase does not work with fingerprint, I have to type password. Happy using quad core laptop :)

I feel like an .....! Sometimes to find the solution, you need to find the "root" of the problem!! Never thought to add fingerprints for root.... su works now as well. :)

Yes my laptop uses UPEK. The only thing I haven't managed to get to work is su. The changes I made to PAM are the following: For login I edited "gdm" (if you dont use gdm edit whichever login manager you use; xdm, kdm, slim...) and "login". I added to the very top --> "auth sufficient" and changed "auth required" to --> "auth required nullok_secure use_first_pass" I did the same thing for "sudo" and "gnome-screensaver" Now login works with both keyboard and fingerprint reader, as well as sudo and unlock-dialog from gnome-screensaver. Did you manage to get su to work?

ffjia commented on 2010-09-09 08:52 (UTC)

Ok, I should read the Install-step-by-step doc carefully. Change the "auth required" line to: "auth sufficient nullok try_first_pass" make it works...

ffjia commented on 2010-09-09 08:10 (UTC)

Cool, dose your laptop use UPEK fingerprint readers? What about your PAM settings? Did you make su work both keyboard and fingerprint reader? My pam.d/su: #%PAM-1.0 auth sufficient # Uncomment the following line to implicitly trust users in the "wheel" group. #auth sufficient trust use_uid # Uncomment the following line to require a user to be in the "wheel" group. #auth required use_uid auth sufficient debug auth required account required session required I have to Press enter key before typing password...

Initial upload Successfully tested on Upek Fingerprint Sensor of Thinkpad T410s in Arch x86_64. The binaries are installed to "/usr/local/bin/", cause it's hardcoded in Globals.h
