thinkfinger command --add-user not working

Postby VinylBassist on Sat Apr 11, 2009 6:06 pm

hello, i recently installed Think Finger into my Dell XPS M1530, when i go to type sudo tf-tool --add-user myloginname

it returns the following:
Code: Select all
ThinkFinger 0.3 (http://thinkfinger.sourceforge.net/)
Copyright (C) 2006, 2007 Timo Hoenig <thoenig@suse.de>

Two output paths specified, but you may only specify one:
  --add-user
  cameron


here is my /etc/pam.d/common-auth

Code: Select all
#
# /etc/pam.d/common-auth - authentication settings common to all services
#
# This file is included from other service-specific PAM config files,
# and should contain a list of the authentication modules that define
# the central authentication scheme for use on the system
# (e.g., /etc/shadow, LDAP, Kerberos, etc.).  The default is to use the
# traditional Unix authentication mechanisms.
#
# As of pam 1.0.1-5, this file is managed by pam-auth-update by default.
# To take advantage of this, it is recommended that you configure any
# local modules either before or after the default block, and use
# pam-auth-update to manage selection of other modules.  See
# pam-auth-update(8) for details.

# here are the per-package modules (the "Primary" block)
auth   sufficient   pam_thinkfinger.so
auth   [success=1 default=ignore]   pam_unix.so try_first_pass nullok_secure
# here's the fallback if no module succeeds
auth   requisite         pam_deny.so
# prime the stack with a positive return value if there isn't one already;
# this avoids us returning an error just because nothing sets a success code
# since the modules above will each just jump around
auth   required         pam_permit.so
# and here are more per-package modules (the "Additional" block)
# end of pam-auth-update config


can anyone help me?

also the /etc/Pam_thinkfinger directory is locked, the folder icon has an X on it, and i cannot get in it... when i type sudo ls /etc/pam_thinkfinger nothing comes up

any ideas on how to make this work?
