vfs0097 users: if you have any issues, make sure talk about it https://gitter.im/Validity90/Lobby so it has a chance to get fixed.

vfs0090 users: the driver should work as expected, but same as above for any issues.

Hi, please can the gobject-introspection package be added to the build dependencies

@Depau could you check pkgver on the PKGBUILD?, yay keeps trying to update the package: aur/libfprint-vfs0090-git 1:v1.90.1+vfs009x.1.r0.g82aed23-1 -> 1:1.90.r0.gb8e684e-1

Package has been updated and it should work with updated fprintd. If you added fprintd to IgnorePkg you can now remove it and update both this package and fprintd.

You need to perform the enrolling again.

I think this should also work with vfs0097 but I'm not sure, I asked Marco for confirmation.

I also packaged validity-sensors-tools in case you need to perform initialization and you don't wanna use snap. Note that, in case you're concerned, upstream didn't specify a license; also it uses stuff from the proprietary drivers from the Lenovo websites, I haven't looked around too much.

I'm sure happy to update, hurray!

Sorry for the delay :/

Upstream updated. Would you like to update this package?

EDIT 2020-06-16:

Upstream rebased on libfprint master, package has been updated.


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.
