NAME
       fprintd - Fingerprint management	daemon,	and test applications

SYNOPSYS
       fprintd-enroll [-f finger] [usename]

       fprintd-list username [usernames...]

       fprintd-verify [-f finger] [usename]

       fprintd-delete username [usernames...]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents briefly the fprintd command-line utilities.

       The fprintd daemon is accessed through D-Bus by those command-line
       utilities.

ARGUMENTS
       username
	       The username for	the user for which you want to query or	modify
	       the fingerprint database.

	       Not that	fprintd-list and fprintd-delete	require	at least one
	       username	to be passed, and support multiple usernames.

	       fprintd-enroll and fprintd-verify will use the current username
	       if none are passed on the command-line.

       -f finger
	       For fprintd-enroll, the finger to enroll. Possible values are:

	       left-thumb, left-index-finger, left-middle-finger, left-ring-
	       finger, left-little-finger, right-thumb,	right-index-finger,
	       right-middle-finger, right-ring-finger, right-little-finger.

	       The default is automatic, selecting the first available finger
	       for swipe devices, or all the enrolled fingers, for press
	       devices.
