Fingerprint sensor on Thinkpad L13 Yoga with Kubuntu 22.04

I wanted to use the fingerprint sensor with said setup but I can’t seem to get it to work.
When I run fprintd-enroll I get the following message:
Impossible to enroll: GDBus.Error:net.reactivated.Fprint.Error.NoSuchDevice: No devices available

My exact laptop model is this

Any ideas on how to get this to work? Seems like the device is

As of 17. March 2024 there is no support for this type of fingerprint reader (06cb:00be) as it is already listed in the unsupported devices of the libfprint GitLab page.

So unfortunately that means waiting until the developers get it to work.
