However, to use this amazing feature there is a requirement for a terminal command or any Any other sources software/tools. You will not find it in Ubuntu’s normal System Settings window but you can move it easily with the help of simple command.

Despite this new feature for users, the Linux Ubuntu Unity 7 desktop environment is still restrictive in other terms. You can only move your unity launcher bar of Ubuntu to the left side of the desktop screen or to the bottom but not to the right or top of your desktop screen. But at least most people prefer bottom as in windows and it also gives wider look on the screen and it is stepping in the right direction.

And I would like to tell you Ubuntu will remember your settings. So you will never have to run the same command again and again. From now onwards the launcher will always appear at the bottom of your window screen when you sign in.

It is easy to move back the unity launcher back t its original position left the side of the screen again. So do not worry about it and run the following command instead: –

Enable Fingerprint Scanner in Linux Ubuntu Latest 16.04

Fingerprint scanner sometimes knows as a fingerprint reader and it is a very important feature of my laptop. I was slightly annoyed and sad with my nonworking fingerprint scanner in Ubuntu. This one is only hardware feature of my laptop that was not working fine in Ubuntu.

However, I have faced the similar problems in my HP ELITEBOOK 8470p so I have taken the step to fix this problem. I tried to find out a solution on the Internet by searching on google. And finally, my search end when I came across a PPA for Ubuntu with the latest libraries.  Also, it contains a cool user interface for managing your hardware device like fingerprint reader for enrolling fingerprints.

To enable hardware support for fingerprint-based authentication in any Linux Ubuntu 16.04 or other operating systems as well as the related GUI, you only required to add PPA using terminal commands given below and install the few packages of the same.

Linux Ubuntu Commands to Enable Fingerprint Scanner in Laptops: –

[sudo apt-add-repository ppa:fingerprint/fingerprint-gui && sudo apt-get update]

[sudo apt-get install libbsapi policykit-1-fingerprint-gui fingerprint-gui]
Note:- PolicyKit packages for fingerprint will remove the default(policykit-gnome etc) thus if you “wanted to remove fingerprint PPA  then you must reinstall these packages manually, or risk a broken device for the same”.

How to Configure Fingerprint Scanner in Linux Ubuntu after Installing it using sudo commands: –
The new defaults packages will take effect when you’ll run the GUI of your system and enroll a few fingers for the same.
Then finally restart the session of your system by logging out and Logging in.
Finally, you can enjoy by unlocking your system screen by logging out and logging in using sudo-ing and run things with root privileges. Jus by using your fingerprints (or toeprints etc, you chose to register after installing) –of course, you can still use your password as an alternative for the same.
