I recently installed Ubuntu 16.10 on my HP ENVY K212ne and I want to use it as default.( my previuos OS was Win10)
I will get this output with "lsusb" command in terminal :
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8001 Intel Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0a5c:216c Broadcom Corp. BCM43142A0 Bluetooth Device
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 138a:0050 Validity Sensors, Inc. Swipe Fingerprint Sensor
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 05c8:036e Cheng Uei Precision Industry Co., Ltd (Foxlink) Webcam
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 3938:1080
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
which means that my fingerprint sensor ID is : 138a:0050
I tried to use fingerprint sensor , so I searched on the net and found two applications named "fprint" and "Fingerprint GUI" . But my sensor couldn't find in "Supported readers" :
How can I find fingerprint sensor drivers ?
I should mention that when I bought this laptop , Ubuntu was installed on it as default (but I don't know which version) .

Hi! @HSILA, Welcome to HP forums.
I understand that you have fingerprint issues with your laptop.
Please refer this article from askubuntu.com. This should help you in getting the fingerprint driver package for your laptop.
I will watch for your reply.
Have a great day! :)
