VFS451 fingerprint reader enroll error
So I got an old hp MobileWorkstation with a Validity Sensors VFS451 fingerprint reader. I found the patched driver in libfprint-git, and fingerprint-gui finds the reader, but when it starts reading there is a segmentation error.
I also tried using fprintd-enroll, but I get this output:
Using device /net/reactivated/Fprint/Device/0
Enrolling right-index-finger finger.
EnrollStart failed: Message recipient disconnected from message bus without replying
If anybody else has the same reader, please help me out.
