I have a new Dell Latitude e5470. The fingerprint reader doesn't work and fprint doesn't recognize the device.

I am on Fedora 22 with libfprint version: $ uname -a Linux mariotuxbox 4.4.6-201.fc22.x86_64 #1 (closed) SMP Wed Mar 30 18:30:16 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux $ rpm -q libfprint libfprint-0.6.0-1.fc22.x86_64
I read the bug #56752 and I understand that there is no driver for my device, isn't?
I am available to buy and send a usb device for the development of driver (I am not a driver developer). Please tell me what you need and which kind of external usb device do you need.
