vfs0097 users

The package will automatically apply a patch required for the vfs0097 reader if one is found in the system at build time, it will otherwise build for vfs0090. You can force a preferred behavior by exporting VFS0097=1 or =0.

If you have any issues, make sure talk about it so it has a chance to get fixed.

GH issues have also been enabled by upstream, so make sure you check that as well:

The driver should work as expected, but same as above for any issues.

@svfedorov thank you Could you try to request maintainership over this package? And maybe try to upstream the code?

svfedorov commented on 2023-01-11 16:16 (UTC)

I rebased the fork on the libfprint 1.94.5 and updated the driver accordingly. The PKGBUILD can be found here:

The package stopped working due to missing file "". As mentioned by MartinX3, installing openssl-1.1 solved the issue.

So you need to : - Downgrade fprintd to version 1.90.1-1 - Remove the x11-examples option - Install the openssl-1.1 missing dependency

At least for device: 138a:0090 Validity Sensors, Inc. VFS7500 Touch Fingerprint Sensor

The package needs to be updated to install openssl-1.1 as dependency or it stops working.

Or it needs a rebase on the newest libfprint code base.

Unfortunately, I no longer use nor can I maintain this package anymore.

Can't build due to errors:

libfprint/ ERROR: Unknown options: "x11-examples"

@kugelblitz It doesn't conflict with fprintd. Newer versions are not compatible.

kaneki commented on 2022-02-03 10:24 (UTC)

Is there any reason for the package to be conflicting with fprintd?

This packages conflicts with fprintd>=1.92.0, so I had to downgrade fprintd to version 1.90.1-1 to make my fingerprint reader (138a:0090) work. I also had to remove the x11-examples option as mentioned in previous comments to be able to build this package.

pacman -Q | grep fprint
fprintd 1.90.1-1
libfprint-vfs009x-git 1:1.90.1.r6.g2978dc0-2

@hfd4220287: The x11-examples option seems to have been removed. It looks like it's been replaced by "gtk-examples". I edited that in PKGBUILD and it built successfully.
