Have 138a:0050 but get No Devices Found!

~$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 138a:0050 Validity Sensors, Inc. Swipe Fingerprint Sensor

This is on a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04.3 on a HP Envy laptop computer.
I installed as documented, rebooted, logged in and get No Devices Found!

Any ideas?

Never mind... you should remove the list of supported devices shown at

And replace it with a reference to devices supported by libfprint.

Hope things progress eventually!
