Package: libfprint0
Version: 1:0.4.0-4-gdfff16f-2
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

while using the fingerprint-gui https://launchpad.net/~fingerprint on my
Thinkpad T61 with this fingerprint  reader:

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 0483:2016 SGS Thomson Microelectronics
Fingerprint Reader

i've got the message "cloud not open fingerprint-device". After adding
the following line:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0483", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2016",
ATTRS{dev}=="*", ATTR{power/control}="auto", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev"

to my


the gui is now working.

It seems that there are two more fingerprint readers missing which the
fingerprint-gui team have included in their libfprint0:

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0483", ATTRS{idProduct}=="2015",
ATTRS{dev}=="*", ATTR{power/control}="auto", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1162", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0300",
ATTRS{dev}=="*", ATTR{power/control}="auto", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev"

Maybe this readers can be added to the rules file from libfprint0?

Thanks in advance.
