I am running 12.04 LTS on Apple mini hardware (about 4 years old).

The fan seems to run non-stop. "ThinkFan" is installed but I do not know how to use it in order to modulate fan speed. The software says that it can be used with systems other than ThinkPads through sysfs hwmon interface. I have no idea what that is.
