--- Comment #3 from Stefan Hundhammer <shundhammer@xxxxxxxx> ---
I just got an answer why the old yast2-fingerprint-reader module was dropped:

https://fate.suse.com/313128 (probably not accessible to you)

"Drop the YaST2 FingerPrint reader module. It does not support modern hardware
(where fingerprint data is stored directly in the laptop firmware)."

Later in the discussion there:

"We should switch to fprintd / pam_fprintd which features a D-Bus interface to
configure and handle fingerprint reader. GNOME already have UI to communicate
with this interface, I don't know for KDE."
