Tips and Tricks

Fingerprint reader stops working

Sometimes fingerprint reader will stop working after sleep or hibernation for no apparent reason. Restart python3-validity.service if that happens.

Alternatively create a systemd service, by creating the unit /etc/systemd/system/fingerprint-restart.service with the following contents:

/etc/systemd/system/fingerprint-restart.service
[Unit]
Description=It resets fingerprint reader sevice in order for it to work. 
After=suspend.target

[Service]
User=root
Type=oneshot
ExecStart=systemctl restart python3-validity
TimeoutSec=0
StandardOutput=syslog

[Install]
WantedBy=suspend.target

Do not forget to enable fingerprint-restart.service.

Check stylus charging status

To check stylus stylus charge, you need to use:

$ upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/tablet_wacom_battery_0 |grep percentage
Note: GNOME seems to show it out-of-the-box in settings.
