Hi everyone,

Looks like the fingerprint reader on the Lenovo T460P is not in the
supported list:

I'm running Fedora 24, with the latest updates, and I have this installed:

$ rpm -qa | grep fprint

And lsusb shows this info:

$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 058f:9540 Alcor Micro Corp. AU9540 Smartcard Reader
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04f2:b541 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 8087:0a2b Intel Corp.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 138a:0090 Validity Sensors, Inc.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 17ef:6039 Lenovo
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation

I'm guessing that the "Validity Sensors, Inc." device is the correct one.

What do I need to do to make the fingerprint reader on this laptop work?
