    Thinkpad T25 /T470 fingerprint reader

    Hello, please I need help with fingerprint reader on TP25.
    I followed the older post here:
    HTML Code:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/8kh2hh/fedora_28_t460p_and_other_138a0090_fingerprint/
    But I modified it installing Validity90 (sensor is 138a:0097)
    Code:
    git clone https://github.com/nmikhailov/Validity90/
    cd Validity90/libfprint
    ./autogen.sh
    make
    sudo make install
    fprintd enroll
    command not found
    sudo fprintd enroll
    command not found
    I still get fprintd-enroll no devices available even it is installed.
    I hope that I have corresponding drivers in /usr/lib64


    Please can anybody help? What could be wrong? Is here anybody who has experience with this fingerprint sensor? What can I check?

    Thank you very much.

    Hello I followed the older post
    https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/co...0_fingerprint/
    But I modified it using
    Code:
     
    git clone https://github.com/nmikhailov/Validity90/ 
    cd Validity90 
    ./autogen.sh 
    make 
    sudo make install
    This created the drivers in /usr/local/lib
    I copied them to /usr/lib64
