ThinkFinger is a driver for the SGS Thomson Microelectronics fingerprint reader found in most IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads. The latest release of ThinkFinger is version 0.3. What I can say, this software is under development, lets hope for the next release will give a better performance and fixed bug. :-)

Major changes (0.2.2 to 0.3):

* support for any device which is working with the binary driver
* avoid fingerprint device from heating up
* new debugging option ‘–enable-usb-debug’ (see INSTALL)
* PAM debug support (see INSTALL)
* compatibility to biometric identification records of the binary driver
