I feel like an .....!

Sometimes to find the solution, you need to find the "root" of the problem!!

Never thought to add fingerprints for root.... su works now as well.

Yes my laptop uses UPEK.

The only thing I haven't managed to get to work is su.

The changes I made to PAM are the following:

For login I edited "gdm" (if you dont use gdm edit whichever login manager you use; xdm, kdm, slim...) and "login".

I added to the very top -->

"auth sufficient"

and changed "auth required" to -->

"auth required nullok_secure use_first_pass"

I did the same thing for "sudo" and "gnome-screensaver"

Now login works with both keyboard and fingerprint reader, as well as sudo and unlock-dialog from gnome-screensaver.

Did you manage to get su to work?

Ok, I should read the Install-step-by-step doc carefully. Change the
"auth required" line to:

"auth sufficient nullok try_first_pass"

make it works...

Cool, dose your laptop use UPEK fingerprint readers?

What about your PAM settings? Did you make su work both keyboard and
fingerprint reader?

My pam.d/su:

auth sufficient
# Uncomment the following line to implicitly trust users in the "wheel" group.
#auth sufficient trust use_uid
# Uncomment the following line to require a user to be in the "wheel" group.
#auth required use_uid
auth sufficient debug
auth required
account required
session required

I have to Press enter key before typing password...

Initial upload

Successfully tested on Upek Fingerprint Sensor of Thinkpad T410s in Arch x86_64.

The binaries are installed to "/usr/local/bin/", cause it's hardcoded in Globals.h
