    need help installing fingerprint scanner

    I just got my new probook 440 g4 and trying to install fprintd. I am confused from the fedora configure post on there site. I want to use it to unlock my computer and maybe use while in terminal.

    what happens when you do:
    dnf install fprintd-pam control-center authconfig gdm-plugin-fingerprint

    Code:
    ast metadata expiration check: 2:41:19 ago on Mon 09 Oct 2017 08:01:09 PM AKDT.
    Package fprintd-pam-0.7.0-2.fc26.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
    Package control-center-1:3.24.3-1.fc26.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
    Package authconfig-7.0.1-2.fc26.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
    Package gdm-1:3.24.3-1.fc26.x86_64 is already installed, skipping.
    Dependencies resolved.
    Nothing to do.
    Complete!
    I already installed it. I don't see an application and I get another issue if I try it in terminal.

    Code:
     fprintd-delete  fprintd-enroll  fprintd-list    fprintd-verify
    I don't know what to do after this.

    I belief you have to install the fingerprint-gui application.

    try dnf install fingerprint-gui

    either install it from source:
    http://www.ullrich-online.cc/fingerprint/

    otherwise install the rpm from opensuse:
