xorg.conf - no section labeled 'Device'


Hi
Trying to get this GPU fan curve script running properly on my PC(Ubuntu Mate 17.10)
https://github.com/nan0s7/nfancurve

Following these directions
https://github.com/nan0s7/nfancurve/...aster/USAGE.md

The section under
making sure your bits are always cool
says open xorg.conf and get the Identifier value under the "Device" section.
I have no "Device" section! Only 2 sections labeled "Input Device"


Code:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 384.90  (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-05)  Tue Sep 1$


Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Layout0"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Files"
!EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"
EndSection

And if I simply try to run the temp.sh script it almost works with one error.
Any shell script experts able to suggest what is wrong and what I should try next?



Code:
###################################
# nan0s7's fan speed curve script #
###################################

No other versions of temp.sh running in background

A likely supported driver version was detected.
The fan curves match up!
Good job! :D
Number of Fans detected:
2
Number of GPUs detected:
2

  Attribute 'GPUFanControlState' (Art3mis:0[gpu:0]) assigned value 1.



Using maximum limit for the temperature difference
Started process for n-GPUs and n-Fans

  Attribute 'GPUTargetFanSpeed' (Art3mis:0[fan:0]) assigned value 40.

       (Art3mis:0[fan:1]) as specified in assignment

A small and lightweight Bash script for using a custom fan curve in Linux for those with an Nvidia GPU.
DID YOU INSTALL THE NVIDA MODULE.

little something nvida uses json to parse the xorg.config.

Code:
Option "Coolbits" "12"
this could be placed anywhere pretty much.
when parsed the commands are triggers.
I used to have a seperate section years ago
when I played with this blob during the Compiz Fusion days.
for the sake of the script writer keep to that device section.
