Fingerprint sensor in linux(debian and such like) (HP6515b)

June 14, 2008

this is it- the fingerprint sensor on my linux is working (and it will work on urs too if it is a debian based system)

I followed this walkthrough:

There still are some issues i outline them for others to solve (i’m also working on them)

1) Segmentaion fault:- Occurs on multiple sudos. after logging on open a terminal and write

sudo gedit

it says

scan yur finger

do it

It opens gedit as root(u can save a text file in gedit or edit the config files in /etc)

now close the gedit window

and type again

sudo gedit

it should say

scan ur finger

but it says

segmentation fault

2)gksu (no visuals) again after logging on open synaptic through the menus and …..

(Nothing happens)

u just see a revolving cursor now just scan ur finger..

u see


So thats the point no visual prompt

Also a suggestion some login themes are incmplete that is they have no message boards so i suggest using happy gnome with browser so u wont have to keep typing the username plus u can see what is happening.

happy swiping and feel free to post comments…..
