Hello,
you can try to upgrade your system first to see if it can fix this issue.

If it's still not working, try the HWE kernel stack (linux-generic-hwe-18.04 for 4.18 kernel, linux-generic-hwe-18.04-edge for 5.0 kernel) [1]

If none of above works, please file a bug with "ubuntu-bug linux" command in a terminal (ctrl + alt + t).

Thanks

What does certified mean in this case? This fingerprint reader quite clearly does not work with Ubuntu and the driver is being reverse engineered at the moment.

I am on 19.04 on a t480s and the system is not able to recognize the device as a fingerprint reader.
