Cannot Detect Fingerprint Sensor on Ubuntu 12.04


I installed software to use fingerprint login, but when I run it, It doesn't show it.

My computer is the Lenovo B570 Laptop.

It worked on the windows 7 the computer came with, but it crashed.

Can you please put command outputs in code tags? It makes them easier to read.

I beleive this is the Sensor.

According to ubuntuforums, people have reported this device to not have Linux drivers. This means that it is unsupported on Linux.
