Users with a fingerprint scanner can use their fingerprints instead of a password to log in. Fingerprint loginbefore it can be used.
Fingerprint readers are not always reliable, so you may wish to disable login using the reader for security reasons.
Create the user profile which contains the following lines:
local is the name of a dconf database.
Create the directory /etc/dconf/db/local.d/ if it does not already exist.
Create the key file /etc/dconf/db/local.d/00-login to provide information for the local database.
# Specify the dconf path [org/gnome/login-screen] # Disable fingerprint reader enable-fingerprint-authentication=false
To prevent the user from overriding these settings, create the file /etc/dconf/db/local.d/locks/login with the following content:
# List the keys used to configure login /org/gnome/login-screen/enable-fingerprint-authentication
Update the system databases:
# dconf update
Users must log out and back in again before the system-wide settings take effect.
