I am currently running Manjaro Linux on a Lenovo ThinkPad L530.
This machine has an integrated UPEK Fingerprint-Reader, with USB-ID
Now what I am trying to do is to set up the fingerprint-gui package from AUR with that fingerprint reader, but it does not recognize the device. It shows up in the 'Attached USB Devices' List though.
When I run the
fingerprint-gui command as root (or with sudo) however, it properly recognizes the reader and is able to use it without any problems whatsoever.
Is there any possibility I can use the fingerprint reader without logging in as root?
