Lack of fingerprint support

I don’t know if this is a general case. But since 16.04, I was never able to use fingerprint unlock on my Dell laptop. I tried various methods from AskUbuntu, but looks like biometric authentication is not popular with Ubuntu. There are many other users who tried my own question about Fingerprint unlock and started their own to get past it. It would be great if Ubuntu can offer more love towards Biometric unlock.

I would check out this guide for Ubuntu 19.04 Log in with a fingerprint. Also, quite a few people have had success with libfprint.

Thank you! I also had the same problem

Thank you I always thought it was just happening with me.
