Version: 20080330+git-4
Severity: important
Tags: squeeze sid upstream

As in bug #584563, I cannot enroll a fingerprint on my Lenovo W510. This seems to be a problem of libfprint0
itself, or at least is a general
problem with the 147e:2016 device.

I get:
#  pam_fprint_enroll
This program will enroll your finger, unconditionally overwriting any selected print that was enrolled
previously. If you want to continue, press
enter, otherwise hit Ctrl+C

Found device claimed by UPEK TouchStrip Sensor-Only driver
Opened device. It's now time to enroll your finger.

You will need to successfully scan your Right Index Finger 1 times to complete the process.

Scan your finger now.
Enroll failed with error -22
So, the error is the same.

Please, discuss the issue with upstream. I may help where I can, but yet it is my working machine on that I
don't do much building from source.

Thank you, and greetings,
