Install Necessary Software
First, I had to install the
fprintd package. After installing the package, I also checked in the
system-config-authentication GUI that the fingerprint reader was enabled.
[root@linux ~]# yum install fprintd
The next step was to enroll my fingerprints, which was done with a single command.
[root@linux ~]# fprintd-enroll
Using Other Fingerprints
Other fingerprints can be enrolled using the
-f flag with
fprintd-enroll. From the man page:
-f finger For fprintd-enroll, the finger to enroll. Possible values are: left-thumb,left-index-finger,left-middle-finger,left-ring-finger,left-little-finger,right-thumb,right-index-finger,right-middle-finger,right-ring-finger,right-little-finger. The default is automatic, selecting the first available finger for swipe devices, or all the enrolled fingers, for press devices.
