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.
libfprint ========= libfprint is part of the fprint project: http://www.reactivated.net/fprint 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 more»
