NAME

fprintd - Fingerprint management daemon, and test applications

CONTENTS

SYNOPSYS

fprintd-enroll [-f finger] [usename]

fprintd-list username [usernames...]

fprintd-verify [-f finger] [usename]

fprintd-delete username [usernames...]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the fprintd command-line utilities.

The fprintd daemon is accessed through D-Bus by those command-line utilities.

ARGUMENTS

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.
