How to enable FP for locked screen but prohibit new logins?

Hi there, thanks for providing Fingerprint GUI.

I'd like NOT to be able to use it to log oon initially, but only to unlock a previously logged-in-using-password session.

Is there a way I can achieve this? (It's more or less the behavior before the Mint 17.2 bug was fixed ... but on purpose ;-))

Yes, its possible. You might read and understand the PAM configuration files in /etc/pam.d/... and setup fingerprint authentication only for the screensaver.

Hello Wolfgang, thanks for your answer. I did try but it's not an "easy read". I hoped a hint to some howto or a good place to start looking.
