I am not sure if this is because my user doesn't show or if it's something else but am having difficulties in finding a solution.
Am running Fedora 16 x64 and up till just now was running it in runlevel mode 3 (init3) and using startx to start the X server.
Now, for whatever reason HW video acceleration was not enabled so in order to be able to make the most of my machine I had to make the switch.
Upon changing the /etc/systemd/system/default.target to runlevel5 I discovered that I don't have any users listed within the GDM greater so I have to manually enter the name. This is not an issue!
I do however want to enable the fingerprint reader for login authentication but it seems that without any users System Settings don't allow for ANY fingers to be 'scanned'.
My other boot is Fedora 15 x64 and was able to create scanned finger print images no problem. There doesn't seem to be a PAM module with that though so I was unable to login using the finger reader.
My concern right now is not F15 but F16 so to not get distracted and stay on track I need to be able to get the finger print reader working somehow.
I did discover this: http://miltus31.blogspot.com/2011/03...n-in-gdm3.html
which lead me to the /etc/pam.d directory, of which the contents are below (libfprint is installed on the system):
chfn gdm-welcome poweroff sshd
chsh gnome-screensaver ppp su
config-util halt reboot sudo
crond login remote sudo-i
fingerprint-auth other run_init su-l
fingerprint-auth-ac passwd runuser system-auth
gdm password-auth runuser-l system-auth-ac
gdm-autologin password-auth-ac smartcard-auth v4l-conf
gdm-fingerprint polkit-1 smartcard-auth-ac xserver
gdm-password postlogin smtp
gdm-smartcard postlogin-ac smtp.sendmail
Can anyone help?
