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.

@Fusate Could you please include the changes of It would be nice to have a newer fprint version.

Fusate commented on 2024-03-25 23:27 (UTC)

I've just fixed this package; thank you @iguanajuice for the easy fix :)

Literally one line change to the PKGBUILD is required to make it work...but I'm too lazy/stupid to know how to edit a PKGBUILD on the AUR; so I'm just going to pin this comment instead, then disown the package.

Just remove -D x11examples from the meson build command.

@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

MartinX3 commented on 2022-11-05 14:58 (UTC)

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"

A full log can be found at /home/<username>/.cache/yay/libfprint-vfs009x-git/src/build/meson-logs/meson-log.txt

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