Dear fedora users,
I recently got a new (for me) thinkpad t580. Everything works almost fine.
I can’t figure out how if I can get the fingerprint reader working or not.
This is the output from lsusb command:
$ lsusb Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0bda:0316 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

Bluetooth wireless interface Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
I guess I have no chance. It is not supported by fprintd.
I found this project, but seems to me it is outdated:
Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
