[Bug 1787974] Re: Fingerprint authentication not available in 18.04


Note that the URL


refers to the latest stable release (currently Ubuntu 19.04)

The URLs to the 18.04 docs is:




Now that doesn't help; apparently the 18.04 docs is a bit insufficient
for 18.04. However, it would be too much work to go back and change the
18.04 docs, so closing.

@Mustafa: If you have problems to make it work, it's probably a support
matter or a bug against some other package, i.e. not a docs bug. You may
want to ask a question at e.g. <https://askubuntu.com> to get help and
find out.

  Fingerprint authentication not available in 18.04

Status in gnome-user-docs package in Ubuntu:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  This page describes a feature not found in 18.04


  Starting from point 3. "Press on Disabled, next to Fingerprint Login
  to add a fingerprint for the selected account. If you are adding the
  fingerprint for a different user, you will first need to Unlock the
  panel." The option "Fingerprint Login" isn't available in the GUI (not
  displayed at all).

  The following steps to enroll fingers are therefore missing as well.
