Support for fingerprint reader

I have an Asus F571GTif that helps. How can I get the name of my fingerprint reader?

as i do ask before already lsusb or lspci should show it also if there is no driver available for it…

This do not look like conventional device… and Asus webside and all reviews not showing a device name…
It will be ELAN tech device as i can see here:

HI, i’ve the same problem.
when I was using Manjaro I tried the archwiki tutorial and despite the help of the administrators my fingerprint reader never worked. I also tried when I was using Arcolinux but it was the same … Do you think you will be able to help me operate this fingerprint reader for the first time?

I see that there is an aur package with patch for your device, maybe you can try it

xinput --list --short
can give ELAN device id, which is clubbed with mouse id for these ASUS devices, and recheck on SPI devices section at

V1.90+ rewrites of libfprint has new API to support these sensors, but I couldn’t be able to figure out how to make the recent libfprint release work with fingerprint-gui. or I don’t know what else can I do with just recent releases of libfprint and fprintd.

maybe the gui package will port when V2.0 releases or hopefully one of us could write a new one by then.

Hi @ceph
it’s cool if it can work. but before I do a backup of my system but with timeshift the images made do not work unlike Manjaro or Arcolinux. I need to learn better how to save with EndeavorOs.
Is this tutorial still relevant? ArchLinux Fingerprint

I don’t think gui package works directly with v1.90+ libfprint version as gui package has a dependency of libfprint-1 and editing PKGBUILD won’t work directly as the API also changed, but I read gnome display manager would provide the gui once these pacakges are available.
else fprintd-enroll could work as per the instructions at

As of now enrolling my asus ELAN sensor results in
Impossible to enroll: GDBus.Error:net.reactivated.Fprint.Error.NoSuchDevice: No devices available
I will tinker more and update my status

I will still try on my other computer what you say because you are probably more qualified than me :wink:

Here is the update after following arch wiki:
As mentioned earlier, the latest merges fortunately added my ELAN (embedded) sensor support to libfprint

If others are looking to add their fingerprint, first check the supported devices list

  • My device id is 04F3:30C6 and I installed fprintd and libfprint packages.
  • Enrolled right index fingerprint using fprintd-enroll, you can set up other fingers too as per the wiki
  • You can verify your added finger with fprintd-verify
  • Added below entries to the start of the files /etc/pam.d/{sudo, system-local-login, kde, sddm}. You can ignore the first line if you want to always trigger fp scan first. Read the wiki for more details.
auth		sufficient try_first_pass likeauth nullok
auth		sufficient

while sudo authentication works with fingerprint so far, the kde/sddm login screen is never triggering fingerprint scan after first enter. More things to try now…

Edit: Yay!! it finally started working after I removed /etc/xdg/autostart/polkit-kde-authentication-agent-1.desktop.

Edit 2.0: Oops! looks like we bumped a really old thread. Sorry.

mine is not listed to supported list .

I followed the instructions, the fingerprint authentication works for example in terminal when it’s neaded(sudo pacman -Syu etc.), but on system start, it doesn’t give me option to fingerprint login, just by entering the password. Btw I’m on gnome, wayland.

you need to set up pam for GDM … i got this working with lightdm was easy I remember…

this is what i used for lightdm:

Dont know about that, cause there’s no one file called gdm.
But i installed fprintd, libfprint, and added fingerprint in Settings->Users->Fingerprint Login.
Also a nice tutorial on the subject.

Please let me know if am missing anything as I am not able to configure the fingerprint in KDE 5.24 as I don’t have option to setup under Settings–>Users

Update: I am not sure if this fingerprint sensor in this laptop is supported as I did not see it in the list of supported devices…may be out of luck here…

It is listed in the unsupported devices.

@ricklinux …thanks for the quick response…appreciate it
