I'm not the person who you asked this question of, but my fingerprint
reader works just fine with `fprint`. If you're looking specifically for
a fingerprint reader that works with Linux, the best place to look is at
the list of supported devices for `fprint`:
For instance, my reader `ID 0483:2016 SGS Thomson Microelectronics
Fingerprint Reader` is on that list and works fairly well with PAM and
Gnome in general. Unfortunately, support isn't as robust as in Windows
and so I can only use one finger to login (as opposed to the experience
on Windows where any registered finger will work).
