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.

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.

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.

@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 It looks like it's been replaced by "gtk-examples".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.

Hello, I also ran into the same issue by vladimir1922 with the error "Unknown options: "x11-examples". I had to edit the PKGBUILD during install (for yay, I used yay --editmenu -S libfprint-vfs009x-git) on line 70 and remove "-D x11-examples=false" in order for the package to compile successfully. Perhaps this needs to be fixed and re-committed @Depau @Stebalien? I apologize for the amateur comment, I am a new Arch user.

Compilation fails for me:

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

Thank you for your work. It's sad to hear. :(
