For the time being, adding this line to prepare() in the PKGBUILD, before git apply, allows us to compile:

git checkout 3bf55a3e0766ca90f5befc1ed161b1c83005a962

Be warned though, this builds the last version of libfprint that did not migrate to Meson, and while it is relatively recent at the time of posting this comment, it might become outdated and unusable in time.

One and a half year later I want to ask you again if you can rename your package to something like "libfprint-validity-git" as it still contains a patch that is not and will not be included in upstream:

Of course it won't be accepted by upstream at least due to license incompatibilities.

Meanwhile there are other packages which add custom patches, libfprint-vfs0090-git and libfprint-vfs0097-git.

This package is broken since upstream changed to Meson instead of Autom4te

SammysHP commented on 2018-03-03 10:20


autom4te is included in the autoconf package which is included in the base-devel group. This group is a requirement for building packages from the AUR. Thus it is not necessary to include this dependency in the package.

thql commented on 2018-03-03 06:45

There is a missing dependency in the package : autom4te

EDIT: or a typo, should it be automake instead?

@oscar.h, @JUSHJUSH: look at the "Upstream URL" as indicated above. This is not a place to report bugs; I'm merely packaging libfprint.

I have issue with VFS300 on Dell Vostro 3300 too. I can't get throught secound enroll.

Where can I report bugs with libfprint because with a VFS300 in a Dell Vostro 3500 (138a:0008) I can only get one pass when I run fprintd-enroll, and then nothing gets recognised

I own a HP EliteBook 9470 with the following FingerPrint device :

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 138a:003d Validity Sensors, Inc. VFS491

I make it work with libfprint-git AND vfs495-daemon !

Thank you. I tried the libprint-upstream-git first, without success.
