Framework laptop 12th gen, trying to get fingerpint to work

So I have kde plasma with kernel 5.15.76-1. I followed some post that recommended to get libfprint. I think I almost got it working.

It says that my fingerprint login is not yet supported. I also already scanned it and when I restart my laptop and try to use my fingerprint, it just doesnt work.
I mostly followed this post. Also my fingerprint is supported for sure. I am using the framewok laptop 12th gen and I also have windows 10 installed on the side. With windows the fingerprint works.
If anyone has some help, thanks. I am also newer.

Hello @haShinui,

the user from the other post uses gnome, which normaly user GDM as “Display Manager” (Login Screen). KDE uses SDDM as Display Manager as I know.

So you should take a look in the Arch Wiki for SDDM.

For more help the helpers have to know more about your system. So please post the output from these commands:

inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --width

Also I guess the package fprintdshould be installed! Is it? :slightly_smiling_face:

Sorry I replied that late, I had family problems and didnt use my laptop for a long time. Yes I already installed fprintd. I am also looking into SDDM right now. Again really sorry for late responds

Also dual booting Windows and fingerprint reader is working there.

On plasma you have to wait until fingerprint implementation is finished. Gnome already has support implemented.

Oh, so I got It up and running. I needed to change some things in the SDDM files and now I can log in with my fingerprint. So if someone has the same problem go to SDDM wiki at 2.9. That all thanks to @kisun who showed me where to look, thanks a lot
