I was able to install
tpfan-adminby following the instructions posted here. However, I'm unable to finish all the instructions.
After installing ThinkPad Fan Control I referred to the instructions again and did this:
Now in the terminal again: Code:
sudo gedit /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/tpfand/settings.py
A text file (gedit) opens up but the file is blank so I can't continue to the next step which is:
Find the lines 170-174 and replace:
Code: self.product_id = None self.product_name = None self.product_pretty_vendor = None self.product_pretty_name = None self.product_pretty_id = None
In addition, when I click on ThinkPad Fan Control this message appears despite being able to install tpfand:
Also, when I try
sudo thinkfanI get this message:
WARNING: Using default temperature inputs in /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal. WARNING: You have not provided any correction values for any sensor, and your fan will only start at 55 °C. This can be dangerous for your hard drive. Config as read from /etc/thinkfan.conf: Fan level Low High 0 0 55 1 48 60 2 50 61 3 52 63 4 56 65 5 59 66 7 63 32767 Daemon PID: 3367 [email protected]:~$
I found this post on how to control ThinkPad fan speed for T430, but I got confused on steps 6 and 7 so I aborted my experiment to do it.
Is there a way to solve this? I hope someone can help me.
I'm using ThinkPad R61i 12.04 64-bit, Intel T5870 4GB RAM, 160 GB HDD.
onvas almost 10 yearsThank you for this, however I'm confused on how to follow the steps from the article since I'm not that knowledgeable in Ubuntu.
devav2 almost 10 yearsCheck this blog for the steps.
onvas almost 10 yearsThank you. Can I ask for clarification though? I've created /etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad-acpi.conf and added
options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1to a blank sheet of gedit file, saved it and closed the window. I'm not sure though what Then reload the module means. Should I open the .conf file again or /proc/acpi/ibm/fan and /proc/acpi/ibm/fan? I don't know what I should do with the code
># modprobe -r thinkpad-acpi ># modprobe thinkpad-acpi Change the value of level ># echo level 7 > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan
devav2 almost 10 yearsOnce you set the fan_control to 1. You need to reload thinkpad-acpi module. So run
modprobe -r thinkpad-acpi
modprobe thinkpad-acpicommands. After reloading set the fan speed to level 7 using
echo level 7 > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan
