Fan speed control on Asus UX31A

I tried to follow the wiki page about fan speed control but after

 # cp /etc/sensors3.conf /etc/sensors.d/sensors.conf 

It says to add a line to your chipset config in the new file  /etc/sensors.d/sensors.conf.

The problem is that I find no mention of the chipsets for my computer in this file.

$ sensors                                                       
acpitz-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +46.0°C  (crit = +108.0°C)

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Physical id 0:  +50.0°C  (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Core 0:         +50.0°C  (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Core 1:         +45.0°C  (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)

asus-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
temp1:        +46.0°C  

According to the wiki my chipset is either acpitz-virtual-0, coretemp-isa-0000 or asus-isa-0000, is it right ?

Re: Fan speed control on Asus UX31A

Is this a new laptop?  Support might not yet be mainlined.  What is its processor and chipset?

Re: Fan speed control on Asus UX31A

You'll need to find out what hardware that corresponds to in order to get support assuming someone has worked on it.    As a long shot, try this package in the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=61127

Re: Fan speed control on Asus UX31A

Just want to mention, that somebody figured out how to control the fan within Linux on the Zenbook Prime UX31A

http://forum.notebookreview.com/asus/70 … x32vd.html

In Windows, Fan Control is possible with a tool called "NoteBook Fan Control" and it works SUPERB on my second windows partition. Everything is completely quite until the temp reaches a given value, e.g. 65°C.

I REALLY HOPE somebody will have the time and knowledge to make a small similar program for Linux.


edit: i just compiled this:
http://pastebin.com/Hp2pWeyL

and it works, I can set the fan speed on my UX31A Prime (values 0 - 255)

It is written that is is an ugly hack but hey, it works! Now there should be a possibility to read the temperature and set the speed accordingly to it.
