Authentication with finger print reader on Fedora Lenovo T530 laptop

0 votes

I am using Fedora 21 with GNOME Shell 3.14.2 in a Lenovo T530 laptop. Is there anyway that I can configure the finder print reader in the laptop to login to GNOME and to authenticate for other operations, such as git push etc ?

If your fingerprint reader is supported, you can configure it in System Settings > Users and for your user it should be there (I'm currently not on gnome desktop to tell you how exactly it is named, but easy to find if supported/displayed), I have older T400 with fingerprint reader which is supported, and it works fine.

Also if you want to find out more, tools/libs are fprintd / libfprint (or similar), also check thinkwiki

My 64-bit Fedora 21 is up-to-date.
In the last few days, suspend is asking for authentication. AFAIK, nothing has changed, other than updates.

Any suggestions?

I have a complex firewall setup running on an older version of Fedora, and I'd like to upgrade to RHEL7 or recent Fedora. Unfortunately, I can't really do what I need using firewalld, so two questions:

1: Has anyone done this and were there any serious gotcha's?

2: Is it as easy as removing firewalld and installing networkmanager with yum?

This setup uses two (soon three) ISP connections, any of which can be used as default, two secure internal networks, and one DMZ for servers. Some connections must be forced out via a defined ISP, and since Linux doesn't source route like BSD, I can't just set the source IP and have the packet go out the right
interface, hoops must be jumped.

Any experience to share?
