[Solved] Fprint & lightdc

Hi everyone, I just installed fprintd for the fingerprint reader on a Lenovo Thinkpad 490 laptop.

sudo pacman -S fprintd libfprint


/etc/pam.d/system-local-login
-----
auth      sufficient pam_fprintd.so
auth      include   system-login
...


fprintd-enroll

It works perfectly on tty, but not with Xfce4.

Does anyone know how to make lightdm work with fprint? I have read that it works in Xubuntu.

Thanks in advance.

Re: [Solved] Fprint & lightdc

As well explained in https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/fprint#Configuration - mea culpa, I had not read - it is possible to modify other files in a similar way.

So you just need to edit /etc/pam.d/lightdm

/etc/pam.d/lightdm
-----
auth        sufficient  pam_fprintd.so
auth        include     system-login
...

and it works out.
