G'day folks I'm currently looking into installing aptosid on a Toshiba U300/302 (psu30a-05302p).

I've been reading up on fingerprint reader support and found out that the current effort is developing libfprint0.

The laptop has a UPEK-SGS/Thomson Microelectronics fingerprint reader connected via the USB bus.

I've booted aptosid 2010-03 (live) and run lsusb as root in a terminal.

The fingerprint reader is detected correctly.

Edit: I neglected to mention the USB ID is 0483:2016

My question is this, does the current version of libprint0 support the SGS/Thomson.

Or will I need to trackdown additional firmware/drivers.

Cheers.

You're welcome. As it happens, I have the same device (on ThinkPad) but I don't use it currently. Would be cool if I used it but last time I checked, there wasn't really a satisfying integration with KDE. That was in KDE3 though. I should find time to check again what the situation is now. Would love to hear your experience with it though.

No worries mate I'll keep you up to date on any progress I make.

As it's for a friends laptop, who lives a fair distance from me, it will be some time between updates.

Cheers.
