vfs0097 users: if you have any issues, make sure talk about it https://gitter.im/Validity90/Lobby so it has a chance to get fixed.

vfs0090 users: the driver should work as expected, but same as above for any issues.

You should probably ask in the Gitter chat: https://gitter.im/Validity90/Lobby

As a temporary workaround you can use downgrader from AUR to download fprintd v0.90 and install this package, then add it to IgnorePkg so it doesn't get upgraded.

Okay. I have installed this other one but when I run fprintd-enroll <username> I get failed to claim device: Open failed with error: The driver encountered a protocol error with the device. Do you know any fix?

Oh, I just realized you're commenting on libfprint-vfs0097-git. This package is out of date, libfprint-vfs009x-git should replace it.

Depau commented on 2020-07-19 15:25

I think you're mixing up something. libfprint-2.so is provided by this AUR package.

Just install this AUR package and then fprintd from the repos. You're probably seeing errors because most AUR helpers will install repo packages first and then AUR packages, while this package needs to be installed first otherwise fprintd will also want to pull libfprint from the repo.

But that causes a compatibility error because this does not include libfprint-2.so Does that mean we cannot use this tool?

Depau commented on 2020-07-18 01:47

The latest

RainbowNia commented on 2020-07-17 10:35

Which version of fprintd do we need?

n3hima commented on 2020-07-12 04:13

Hi, please can the gobject-introspection package be added to the build dependencies

gugah commented on 2020-06-20 16:03

@Depau could you check pkgver on the PKGBUILD?, yay keeps trying to update the package: aur/libfprint-vfs0090-git 1:v1.90.1+vfs009x.1.r0.g82aed23-1 -> 1:1.90.r0.gb8e684e-1
