OP 8 pro (instantnoodlep) fingerprint scanner not working


yesterday I installed /e/ (20220629.022025 dev-keys)on my OP 8 pro. The fingerprint scanner is not working from the first boot on. When I try to add fingerprints, the scanner starts to light up, so it recognizes the touch, but it actually doesn’t scan the finger. The fingerprint symbol then stays lit until I either on/off the display or I press the home-button.

Is there a way to get the scanner working or is it still a wip-bug?

best regards

I use the OP8P as a backup device. Fingerprints haven’t been working since 1.0 came onto the scene. I ended up installing Lineage w/ MicroG on that device and then doing my best to recreate the /e/ suite of applications and settings.
It’s actually not a bad setup, I use Shelter to separate FOSS applications from proprietary ones, and having the Trebuchet launcher makes them much easier to access.

Hi HellsBells,
thanks for your quick reply. Today I also installed Lineage with MicroG and I think I’m going to stick to it - at least as long as /e/ OS for the OP8 pro is still a nightly.
