fprintd - Fingerprint management daemon, and test applications
fprintd-enroll [-f finger] [usename] fprintd-list username [usernames...] fprintd-verify [-f finger] [usename] fprintd-delete username [usernames...]
This manual page documents briefly the fprintd command-line utilities. The fprintd daemon is accessed through D-Bus by those command-line utilities.
username The username for the user for which you want to query or modify the fingerprint database. Not that fprintd-list and fprintd-delete require at least one username to be passed, and support multiple usernames. fprintd-enroll and fprintd-verify will use the current username if none are passed on the command-line. -f finger For fprintd-enroll, the finger to enroll. Possible values are: left-thumb, left-index-finger, left-middle-finger, left-ring-finger, left-little- finger, right-thumb, right-index-finger, right-middle-finger, right-ring-finger, right-little-finger. The default is automatic, selecting the first available finger for swipe devices, or all the enrolled fingers, for press devices.
fprintd-enroll Will enroll the user's right index finger into the database. fprintd-list Will list the user's enrolled fingerprints. fprintd-verify Will enroll the user's right index finger into the database. fprintd-enroll Will enroll the user's right index finger into the database.
