async fingerprint library of fprint project, development headers

The fprint project aims to support for consumer fingerprint reader devices.

Previously, Linux support for such devices has been scattered amongst different projects (many incomplete) and inconsistent in that application developers would have to implement support for each type of fingerprint reader separately. The idea is to change that by providing a central system to support all the fingerprint readers as it's possible to get hands on.

libfprint is the centre of efforts, this component does the dirty job of talking to fingerprint reading devices, and processing fingerprint data.

This library depends on the new libusb, which performs asynchronous callbacks, allowing fprint to perform non-blocking device tasks.

This package provides development headers.

Package version:1:0.4.0-4-gdfff16f-4



libfprint is part of the fprint project:

libfprint was originally developed as part of an academic project at the
University of Manchester with the aim of hiding differences between different
consumer fingerprint scanners and providing a single uniform API to application
developers. The ultimate goal of the fprint project is to make fingerpri
