fprintd is a D-Bus service, meaning that it’s not managed by shepherd,
and thus not accessible with the ‘herd’ command.

Instead, it’s supposed to be started on demand when applications ask for
the fingerprint service.  The ‘fprintd’ package provides several
commands starting with ‘fprintd-’ that should allow you to check whether
it’s working.

Now, I’ve never actually used this service, so take it with a grain of
salt.  :-)
