Just do as told on the site.
The commands like
Quote:
tar xvfz acer_fancontrol.tar.gz
need to be done in a terminal.(just copy/paste)

Which distribution are you using?

Spell out your words....and give a complete error message. Are you root when you type that in? What is the exact error that it returns?

You need to be root or SUDO to run modprobe. Modprobe isn't in your path...find it (it's probably in /sbin or /usr/sbin), then type in "<path name>/modprobe".

Also, if you pay attention to the error messages, you'll see that when you try to run acer_fancontrol, it's trying to insert the module for you. Either SUDO or su to root, make sure the path to modprobe is in your $PATH variable, and run acer_fancontrol.
