how to perform fingerprint verification on Edless? as I understand it, this is not possible?
It should work … but i can’t verify it right now, as i don’t have a supported Biometric reader on the device i’m currently on.
Enable Fingerprint Reader for Authentication purposes
sudo pam-auth-update --force
There, select Fingerprint and commit your changes.
Enroll your Fingerprint
You can either use the GNOME GUI (Settings → Users), or the command line tools.
There are various commands on the command line:
fprintd-enrollto enroll a new Fingerprint for authentication
fprintd-verifyto check a Fingerprint
fprintd-listto list enrolled Fingerprints
fprintd-deleteto remove enrolled Fingerprints
but it didn’t help. There is no option in the user menu. The error “list_devices failed: No devices available” appeared in the terminal"
Can you please run:
and post it’s output here. Either your Fingerprint device is not supported or disabled in the BIOS.
