From the logs I found the udev rule uses the "Ubuntuism" plugdev group, which isn't available in Arch (or any not-Ubuntu-distribution).

The solution seems to replace the GROUP with the "uacess" TAG. See

But I'm not sure about this.

What version of fprintd do I use with this? I tried fprintd-libfprint2, but it wants to replace libfprint-tod with libfprint, which it can't do because this packages requires libfprint-tod.

Can confirm it works with xps 15 9500 too

Done, thanks for bringing it up!

Thanks for packaging this. I think you need to update the SRCINFO as well, it's still got the older pkgrel and source values.

Thanks for the reminder! Apologies, I totally forgot. Seems like Dell/Canonical reverted their devel branch and that points to 0.0.4 now, instead of 0.0.6. The commit message from the Goodix engineers on the 0.0.6 version looks interesting enough that I thought it was worth keeping it instead of reverting to 0.0.4, even if it means using some specific branch

bugfix: prevent power button taking effect during enrollment power button press down event should not report during enrollment, this can prevent screen off while user press power button while enroll a finger.

feature: add template update feature for improve recognition success rate allow user's finger prints self-learning, this can improve user unlock experience

Just pushed an update and bumped the pkgrel so it doesn't mess up anyone's installed version. I installed it locally and seems fine but please comment here if there are any problems :)

i get everytime I update my AUR packages a prompt to update this package (Version 0.0.4-1 installed, 0.0.6-1 is available). After installing it I get the same prompt again. I guess that's the same issue CaeZaR mentioned.

Any change you'll find some time to fix this?

Thanks a lot :-).

Thanks for the confirmation re. XPS 9700!

The devel branch used to have a 0.0.6 version that apparently never got merged and has been removed... interesting. Will update the version later this week - don't have my Arch machine with me atm

This package also works on the XPS 9700.

I don't understand why the package version is 0.0.6 when the internal files point to version 0.0.4
