Package is still broken, you still need to get an older fprintd version < 1.90 from ALA.

You can do that with downgrader.

In case anybody was wondering, the build now works. However, Arch updated fprintd to the latest version, which requires libfprint-2.so, which is not provided by this package.

Until upstream merges libfprint >= 1.90 into his fork (which I tried to do myself but it requires manual API usage fixing, no time for that - sorry), you'll have to stick with an older version of fprintd.

@hmu confirmed. That's an upstream issue, however. I'll report that and consider adding a patch to the package.

EDIT: Unless I'm missing something, it looks like 3v1n0 rebased his repo on top of upstream master, but they made changes to the API and it needs refactoring. So, removing the #include "driver_ids.h" line doesn't help.

Long story short, the package is broken and there's not much I can do about it. Please help upstream and send pull requests if you can :)

This doesn't build for me, it complains about driver_ids.h missing. Apparently not all references where removed in the drivers.

@djres Reboot. In general, ask upstream.

I'm getting some error:

$ fprintd-enroll Using device /net/reactivated/Fprint/Device/0 failed to claim device: Open failed with error -5

Anyone knows what's wrong?

Sorry for having you waiting, I updated the PKGBUILD.

It stopped building because upstream switched the build system from GNU autotools to Meson.

I get the same error as @speculees

Can't install this package. Getting error:

.../.cache/yay/libfprint-vfs0090-git/PKGBUILD: line 34: ./autogen.sh: No such file or directory

hrenod's package uses another repo to support 0097. This one is tested with 0090.
