I have a infrared camera/sensor built into my laptop which is used for face recognition in Windows using Windows Hello. Is there a way to make use of the hardware in fedora to login into Fedora.

I am using Fedora 27 64 bit version with Linux kernel 4.13.13-300.fc27.x86_64

output of uname -a Linux lovepreetpc 4.13.13-300.fc27.x8664 #1 SMP Wed Nov 15 15:47:50 UTC 2017 x8664 x8664 x8664 GNU/Linux

If you can configure the camara on Fedora, try using it with cheese. The you can try kf5-libkface and look at this https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.p... may give you pointers of what you may need to do.

are you certain the drivers for the hardware are installed?

Try the manufacture web site, look for the linux kernel module
