Note that Arch does not have a system group named plugdev, so creating it from an AUR package is an ugly hack which may break the system if you decide to uninstall the package, in which case the group gets removed regardless if other things still use it or not.

Why is it not replaced by some other group as pointed out in the upstream manual?

I have adopted and updated the package. Now it relies on the libfprint-1 package which is libfprint version 1.0.

I sort of "succeeded" in compiling this package with a (dirty?) trick. Just downgrade libfprint to 1.0 and it'll build and work. So, what is needed is a libfprint-1 package for libfprint 1.0 and change the depends accordingly. Hope it helps.

So digging into this deeper, the original repo at has been taken down, and there seem to be several copies laying around (,, and I tried myself with fixing some of the issues I was running into while compiling, and came across a post on the opensuse forums who was trying to do stuff similar to me ( There's not much I can do from here as this requires someone familiar with QT4/QT5 (I am not).

created an upstream issue for this: sadly i don't have the time to dig into this myself right now. at least there is an issue now.

If I figure out how I could get this to build, I can adopt this package. But I would rather not adopt a broken package...

Getting the same error. @enihcam are you saying to build from source?
