Has anyone managed to get the Fingerprint reader working on current model (Pavilion DV6) HP Notebooks? looked into it last year but no solution. Not critical but it would be nice...:)
Hi all,I have a new HP dv6 with a fingerprint reader from Validity Sensors. Me, and a lot of other HP owners are unable to use the fingerprint reader, because there are no linux drivers for it (even fprint wouldn't recognize it).Now, the Validity sensor website has provided a linux setup for the reader, but it is only in rpm.
I just set up the fingerprint reader, which is pretty cool, but I have an encrypted home directory which it does not unlock when I log in, so I still have to manually enter my password. Is there a setting to fix this?
Also, there's a little graphic that comes up when I'm prompted for my password/fingerprint ... it looks terrible.
