I have a Thinkpad and I usually use thinkfan to control the fan on my laptop. But this program doesn't start at the startup automatically, so I created a startup program with this command:

sudo  /etc/init.d/thinkfan start

That is the command in the guide to start thinkfan.

But this didn't work. How can I fix?

  • This just starts the thinkfan service for the current session from my point of view, but doesnt implement a permanent service-start on boot – dufte May 18 '16 at 7:21
  • Does sudo thinkfan -n work (as per this)? – David Foerster May 18 '16 at 8:42
  • the command works. – linofex May 19 '16 at 20:02
