How to Add Fingerprint Login in Ubuntu and Other Linux Distributions

GNOME and KDE now support fingerprint login through system settings. Learn how to add this convenient feature to your Linux desktop.

 

Many high-end laptops come with fingerprint readers these days. Windows and macOS have been supporting fingerprint login for some time. In desktop Linux, the support for fingerprint login was more of geeky tweaks but GNOME and KDE have started supporting it through system settings.

This means that on newer Linux distribution versions, you can easily use fingerprint reading. I am going to enable fingerprint login in Ubuntu here but you may use the steps on other distributions running GNOME 3.38.
