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.

Re: need help installing fingerprint scanner

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

Re: need help installing fingerprint scanner

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

otherwise install the rpm from opensuse:
