The driver is included in all kernels from 2.6.11 upwards.
Get the standalone driver (v0.6).
Get the patch for 2.6.7.
Get the patch for 2.6.10.
This is a Linux usb-misc driver for the Siemens ID Mouse USB FingerTIP
The ID Mouse Professional uses the same sensor, so the driver might
work there, too.
Just unpack the standalone driver and run make (assuming that your kernel
is in /usr/src/linux).
The patch can be applied against the Linux kernels 2.6.7 and 2.6.10 (via "cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.n ; patch -p1 < linux-2.6.n-idmouse.patch").
Install the driver via modprobe, and then read the fingerprints out of /dev/usb/idmouseX
or /dev/idmouseX, depending on your devfs settings. When the device is opened, a new
fingerprint is read into the buffer, and can be read out as a pgm file.
