Yes I know that V8 is much much quieter compared to stock ones but still when you keep your case's left door open and the case in about 30 cm from where your keyboard is there is still a noticeable noise . and I also have a chassis fan that is pretty loud . So I really want to lower their speed and keep them low .
And yes I know about the BIOS but still the chassis speed is high and I want to tune down and keep it down . speedfan did that job well for 3 years now I want to find a Linux alternative
And my temps are fine I only want to do this because of the noise .
I did try to install thinkpad fan . I installed it from software center but I didn't find any shortcuts or any ways to run it in terminal . I managed to read the read-me and it says " ou are required to have the Linux kernel with 'thinkpad-acpi' patch.You must also enable manual control for your fans. For Linux 2.6.22 and above." which I have no Idea what it means .
I tried this guide for im-sensors : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=42737
which says go here : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2780
I followed until the line that says :
b. Make the file executable:
chmod 755 mkdev.sh
c. Run mkdev.sh from the current directory
I don't know how to make it executable .
So can you guys help me setup one of these 2 ?
