@kakawait you already helped me a lot, thanks a lot both to you and to @mattmurr!

@cicagorio about fingerprint issue I can't help you. I'm not dev of the project. I think you could have best support by creating or participing to github issue.

@kakawait this fixes the suspend problem. Thanks!

Now I am facing another issue, it is hard to get it to match the fingerprints. I tried doing a factory-reset of the fingerprint chip and re-enrolling the fingerprints. Enrolling works fine, but it hardly matches my fingerprints when I try to authenticate. It seems to be the same problem as here: https://github.com/uunicorn/python-validity/issues/46

however I noticed that when I tap the fingerprint scanner really fast, it manages to match, but if I hold my finger a bit more on the scanner it fails to match, which is weird I think. It should be easier to match fingerprints if they are longer on the scanner.

@mattmurr I just retried and reinstalled the latest available version of open-fprintd (0.6-1) followed by reinstalling this package and rebooting. The problem is still there.

I am on kernel 5.8.16-2

@cicagorio: Depends on open-fprintd>=0.6 so make sure you are also updating that, followed by a restart.

After updating to the latest version, scanning is broken after suspend, meaning that my xfce login manager does not offer to scan the fingerprint, also when I try to use sudo after in the terminal it immediately asks me for the password. I reverted to previous version of this package and it works fine. What might be causing this?

@mattmurr Yes i saw that too late. I've deleted comment and move to -git version. Sorry for disturbing. But you'll know that as soon 0.12 will be released that you'll have to do the same change

@kakawait: This package is based on latest 0.9 release, are you installing the -git package?

@titaniumtown: Thanks, fixed.
