Fingerprint Reader Help

Asked by MetungKP on 2011-05-26

It looks like I was able to install FPrint. I was able to register 10 fingers and it says ready to be used. My problem is the fingerprint scanner optio in About Me is missing, how do I get this option?

This is where I got my info from: http://www.ubuntu-unleashed.com/2008/04/get-your-fingerprint-reader-to-work-in.html

The final thing I had to do is this below:

sudo usermod -a -G plugdev $USER
groups | grep plugdev # Make sure there is output from this
sudo chgrp -R plugdev /dev/bus/usb/

I just noticed it said make sure there is output from this. I didn't put any output. Could this be part of the problem?

Help!

Thanks!`in Advance

What is the exact output of these three commands?

sudo usermod -a -G plugdev $USER
groups | grep plugdev # Make sure there is output from this
sudo chgrp -R plugdev /dev/bus/usb/

Please copy/and paste the output into a new message of theos question thread
