My computer is prone to over-heating when I'm using Ubuntu and so I'm trying to control the fan speeds. I've researched a little and I'm blocked on how to control fan speed and then installed `lm-sensors`and `fan control`.
I'm now trying to configure lm-sensors to no avail. In terminal I typed `sudo sensors-detect` and answer YES to all YES/no questions. Installed modules with` sudo /etc/init.d/kmod start`.
Now when I typed `sudo pwmconfig` I get this output /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
The way I tried to fixed this is to edit /etc/default/grub to add `acpi_enforce_resources=lax` to the `GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT` and then perform a grub update. I'm still having the same issue.
Could it be that my fans are PWM 3-pin where fan speed is controlled by voltage?
I am in the market for a Linux laptop & found your post (2 years after you left it) becasue you describe the same problem I had but was never able to solve.
