NAME
       fprintd - Fingerprint management daemon, and test applications

SYNOPSYS
       fprintd-enroll [username]

       fprintd-list username [usernames...]

       fprintd-verify [-f finger] [usename]

       fprintd-delete username [usernames...]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the fprintd command-line utilities.

       The fprintd daemon is accessed through D-Bus by those command-line utilities.

ARGUMENTS
       username
               The username for the user for which you want to query or modify the fingerprint database.

               Not that fprintd-list and fprintd-delete require at least one username to be passed, and support
               multiple usernames.

               fprintd-enroll and fprintd-verify will use the current username if none are passed on the command-line.

       -f finger
               For fprintd-enroll, the finger to enroll. Possible values are:

               left-thumb, left-index-finger, left-middle-finger, left-ring-finger, left-little-finger, right-thumb,
               right-index-finger, right-middle-finger, right-ring-finger, right-little-finger.

               The default is automatic, selecting the first available finger for swipe devices, or all the enrolled
               fingers, for press devices.

TEST APPLICATIONS
       fprintd-enroll

               Will enroll the user's right index finger into the database.

       fprintd-list

               Will list the user's enrolled fingerprints.

       fprintd-verify

               Will enroll the user's right index finger into the database.

       fprintd-enroll
