pam fprint v0.2 was released on 19th November 2007.

This is a proof-of-concept module and might not work well in some environments (such as a graphical login manager).

Be aware that libfprint does not guarantee a stable ABI. So, pam_fprint may break if you upgrade libfprint in future without recompiling pam_fprint.

You must enroll a finger before you can use pam_fprint. This release adds an enrollment program called pam_fprint_enroll. Alternatively you can use the GUI from fprint demo.
