I have a new Dell Latitude e5470. The fingerprint reader doesn't work and fprint doesn't recognize the device.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0a5c:5805 Broadcom Corp.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:5686 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
I am on Fedora 22 with libfprint version:
$ uname -a
Linux mariotuxbox 4.4.6-201.fc22.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Mar 30 18:30:16 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ rpm -q libfprint
I read the bug #56752 and I understand that there is no driver for my device, isn't?
I am available to buy and send a usb device for the development of driver (I am not a driver developer). Please tell me what you need and which kind of external usb device do you need.
I suffer from the same problem. Support for 0a5c:5805 would really be appreciated.
