I was able to install
tpfan-admin by 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 thinkfan I 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 juno@Oogushi:~$
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.
