Fingerprint reader not working on HP Pavilion dv6-1116tx + Fedora core 11
Fingerprint reader on my HP Pavilion dv6-1116tx not working. Here is what I have so far -
1. all fprint* packages installed (fprintd-delete, fprintd-enroll fprintd-verify, fprint_demo, fprintd-list)
2. pam_fprint_enroll installed
When I run 'pam_fprint_enroll' it does not detect any hardware device.
This program will enroll your finger, unconditionally overwriting any selected print that was enrolled previously. If you want to continue, press enter, otherwise hit Ctrl+C
No devices detected.
3. authconfig installed
4. output from 'lsusb | grep Fingerprint' -
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 138a:0001 DigitalPersona, Inc Fingeprint Reader
It seems driver fails to detect the hardware. I downloaded "libfprint-0.1.0-pre2" and after going over the website, found that "uru4000" driver now controls this device on linux.
Running configure as follows did not build the driver --
Should not this driver get automatically installed with libfprint? Also, is this the right procedure to built the driver from source code?
