  Dell Fingerprint

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  The included fingerprint scanner for my part in the Dell Latitude
  E6530 with Ubuntu 4.12 does not work. It would be very interesting as
  Ubuntu and Dell working on it to activate the system.

  Here is the corresponding line via lsusb:

  Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0a5c: 5801 Broadcom Corp.. BCM5880 Secure
  Application Processor with fingerprint swipe sensor

  Thank you.
