Creating a new software is something that many do in attempt to earn more. If you can’t code you might consider using the Quantum code app which will require only a small portion of your spare time. You don’t have to be experienced trader to be successful with it.
The final 1.0 release of UPEK, Inc.’s BioAPI 1.1 compliant GNU/Linux BSP for their TouchChip TFM/ESS fingerprint sensor is now available publicly.
- standard TCD41 swipe readers (most notebooks and the TCRZ stand-alone reader)
- libusb (already installed by most distributions)
- usbfs (USB device filesystem, already installed by most distributions).
- X Windows (the libraries are required, even if the GUI isn’t used)
- BioAPI 1.10 framework (official reference implementation source is at the BioAPI Consortium, however the unofficial version of BioAPI framework reference implementation is recommended, because it fixes several issues)
- The BioAPI 1.10 compliant Biometric Service Provider (BSP) from UPEK’s ftp site (see below)
Support for this public beta is provided by the community via the linux-biometrics mailing list, the UPEK BSP discussion on the linuxbiometrics.com forum, and the #linuxbiometrics IRC channel on FreeNode. You can join the

Does this work for you? Please share your experiences using this driver either with the community, or privately with myself. Include the following in your feedback:
- Model of UPEK fingerprint sensor — or system with embedded sensor
- GNU/Linux distribution and processor
- Version and provider of your BioAPI framework
- Which applications you tried using the BSP with (sample program, other BioAPI-compliant application, or PAM-aware application via pam-bioapi)

Special thanks to UPEK for their willingness to work with and support the GNU/Linux community and Josiah Ritchie of linuxbiometrics.com for the kickstarting this.
