Unable to use Linux system authentication

Hello,

I have a fresh install off NixOS, and I'm trying to get the system authentication to work for 1password, with an eye to enabling SSH support.

When I launch (locked) 1password, I see the password entry and fingerprint icon. When I click on the fingerprint icon, i see "That didn't work. Check your password and try again" immediately, with no system prompt.

$ cat ~/.config/1Password/logs/1Password_r00012.log 
...

Any ideas on what to try next? Thanks in advance!

    Hey @munyari, thanks for reaching out. I'd like to ask you to try enabling kwallet authentication which appears to by disabled by default. You can do so by setting: security.pam.services.kwallet.enableKwallet = true.

    Let me know how that goes - looking forward to your reply!

    I am not the OP, but I have a similar setup. Above suggestion to enable Kwallet did not help. Anything else I can try?

    Resolved.

    A note for any future NixOS user who runs into a similar issue, system authentication takes a bit more effort than just installing the 1password application. Refer to https://1password.community/discussion/comment/638537/#Comment_638537 for more information.
