Lenovo Flex 5 fingerprint reader

I've been installing arch on my Lenovo Flex 5.  It is a fabulous laptop with an excellent screen a great new inexpensive 8250u (4 core/8 thread) cpu.

I've essentially gone through all of the configuration to get all of its features working, except for 1.  I cannot get the fingerprint reader working.  I tried both fprint and fingerprint-gui.  Here is the relevant information:

[lamb@sheepLaptop ~]$ sudo lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0cf3:e300 Qualcomm Atheros Communications 
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 06cb:0081 Synaptics, Inc. 
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:58ea Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

I'm almost positive that the FP reader is device 005.

[lamb@sheepLaptop ~]$ lsusb -s 001:005 -v

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 06cb:0081 Synaptics, Inc.
