For most Linux distros the solution is simple:
$ fwupdmgr get-updates$ fwupdmgr update$ fprintd-enroll
The first two commands will fetch and install linux-specific firmware for the scanner, and the second will enroll your fingeprint. Later you can add more fingers using your account preferences (at least in gnome).
It was tested under Manjaro 20 with Gnome.
