Alright, I've taken over the maintenance of this package. I use it fairly regularly for my ThinkPad T490s and will try to keep this up to date.

@timothy_gu: Done. Thanks. I guess I'll just disown this package as I don't own/use compatible hardware anymore and don't have this installed...

The latest version of libfprint requires some additional packages like libgusb. This works for me:

depends=('glib2>=2.56' 'libgusb>=0.3.0' nss pixman)
makedepends=(git gobject-introspection gtk-doc 'meson>=0.49.0')

With this you could also enable check() support:

check() {
  meson test -C build

Finally, the -D x11-examples=false in build() no longer does anything and can be removed. (Examples are all GTK-based now.)

@ytexas @otaj Fixed. The official repo PKGBUILD strangely does not include gobject-introspection as a makedep.

ytexas commented on 2019-12-31 05:24

Need: gobject-introspection

Required by meson when compiling.

otaj commented on 2019-11-26 15:31

gobject-introspection is missing from makedepends

I've developed a new driver for the proprietary binaries, which include support for VFS495 (among others). The source code and installation instructions are here -

@intelfx Yeah, this should be fine now, thanks! I'll delete/move my package libfprint-upstream-git.

@rocky7x I have since dropped the vfs495-daemon glue patch because it stopped applying and I have found no interest in forward-porting it again.

@SammysHP I believe now you have no concerns over this package?

Having VFS495 Validity device (138a:003f) and when I install this together with vfs495-daemon it doesn't work - throws No devices found - any idea? i added myself to plugdev and scanner groups...
