Fprint and fingerprint gui not working

by Aditya Shah   Last Updated October 09, 2019 15:02 PM - source

I have a lenovo ideapad520 and I want to login through the finger print reader in Ubuntu 18.04. I tried installing both fprintd and fingerprint gui but both of them shows as no devices available.

I would be glad if someone can help me out

[email protected]:~$ fprintd-enroll
list_devices failed: No devices available

This is my output for lsusb:
