Description Jan Buecken 2010-10-15 11:21:12 UTC
libfprint is a great library supporting many fingerprint / touchstrip hardware and software. And such a driver/software is rare in portage. Thus gentoo should support this library.
Since the wischlich-testing is down where fprint-ebuilds were hosted it should go into portage now.

Reproducible: Always

ebuild for developer version

Some software depends on very new versions of libfprint, thus a git-version could be helpful

ebuild for developer version

Don't use this git ebuild. The git repo has been ported to freedesktop.
and my new bug #341639 .
