Unhappy ATI Catalyst issue

I'm dabbling with Ubuntu, until I get my Gentoo setup going, but my issue applies to linux in general. I have just installed the Linux CCC 10.2 on Ubuntu, and I am noticing they still have not provided any method for controlling the fan speed of the video card(I'm running a XFX Radeon HD 4890). I have installed MSI Afterburner with wine; it successfully installed it, but it will not launch the actual utility. Does anyone know how to get MSI Afterburner to work, a Windows program that has fan control capabilities and runs well under Linux, or of any other way to rectify this issue?

I have read a couple of posts on using lm-sensor to try and control my fan speed issue, but I have not figured this out either.

Any help would be appreciated.

You probably need to add the Afterburner executable to wine's programs list. Also, when you run a Windows program with wine, you need to type:

linux@linux # wine <path_to_executable>

Sometimes, if the program requires access to hardware, you need to run:

winecfg as root, add the program executable, and then run it as root.
