0. First of all, if you have installed Fingerprint GUI manually before, get rid of it completely. Remove all binaries, shared libraries, any other files and undo all the changes you have made to your system config files (especially to files under /etc/pam.d/).1. Add this PPA to your sources: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fingerprint/fingerprint-gui sudo apt-get update2. Install the packages: sudo apt-get install libbsapi policykit-1-fingerprint-gui fingerprint-gui3. Log out of your session and log back in (we need the new session defaults to be picked up).Setup=====After installation launch “Fingerprint GUI” and enrol your fingerprints.That should be all you need to do!Try locking your screen, logging out and in, sudo in terminal and running graphical apps requiring root privileges.
If it were me, it would have been "and then I discovered it was a fingerprint scanner, so I threw the keyboard away, after taking a hammer to it".
