• Broadcom BCM5880 Fingerprint sensor - Not Working


    Hello everyone,

    My laptop has a Broadcom BCM5880 fingerprint sensor, and I simply cannot find out how to get it to work. Fingerprint-gui does not detect it and fprint gives me a “no devices” error.

    Help would be appreciated.

    may device is simply not supported?

    can you check ?

  • OK, The device is not technically supported as a fingerprint sensor, but it’s there as:

    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0a5c:5800 Broadcom Corp. BCM5880 Secure Applications Processor

    I was hoping there was some workaround, or drivers deep in the pits of GitHub.
