  Setting up fingerprint reader is clunky

Status in gnome-control-center package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  There seems to be no easy way to set up a fingerprint reader (in this
  case, aes2501). According to an older tutorial* there should be an
  option in the User Accounts window to set it up, but something like
  that was not present in my 12.04 installation.

  Anyway, I ended up doing manually:
  1) sudo apt-get install libfprint0 libpam-fprint
  2) pam_fprint_enroll
  3) sudo pam-auth-update

  Not that hard actually, but as the drivers from the fprint project
  seem to work quite well, having a straightforward graphical
  configuration would be the icing on the cake.
