There is no option for adding fingerprint in setting ---> users tab ; fprint is installed

I have checked the bios setting, the fingerprint is enabled there. also I got below output for $rpm -qa | grep -i fprint.

$rpm -qa | grep -i fprint
libfprint-1.94.2-1.fc35.x86_64
fprintd-1.94.1-1.fc35.x86_64
fprintd-pam-1.94.1-1.fc35.x86_64

but still I can’t able to see any option to add fingerprint in setting → Users tab.
My system is fedora 35, gnome 41. Thinkpad E14 ryzen 7.

please find attached pic of users tab.

Probably it is an unsupported fingerprint reader?
Please post the result of
lsusb

Are you sure your fingerprint is recognize and enable by the system?

What about share this information with us?

lspci
lsusb

or you can install hw-probeand executed with sudo hw-probe --all

and share with us this file → /root/HW_PROBE/LATEST/hw.info/devices.json

You can check the status of the service:

sudo systemctl status fprintd.service

Note

you can find some informatio here too: → Issues · libfprint / libfprint and check is was reported in upstream…

Then I checked with ‘sudo systemctl status fprintd.service’ it was inactive. how do i activate permanently?

I’m afraid you’re in bad water with this fingerprint reader.

Some info here: GitHub - 4f77616973/ThinkPad-E14-fingerprint: Reverse engineering of Validity/Synaptics 06cb:00da for Linux

you r right @hhlp & @alciregi , my device is not compatible with fprint. is there any other way?
