Fan control for Dell laptops
Install sudo apt install i8kutils

This is a collection of utilities to control Dell laptops fans. It includes programs to turn the fan on and off, to read fan status, CPU temperature, BIOS version and to handle the volume buttons and Fn-keys.

The package includes also a small Tk applet, designed to be swallowed in the GNOME panel, which monitors the CPU temperature and controls automatically the fans accordingly to user defined thresholds.

The programs require the kernel module i8k.ko which can be compiled from the package sources or found in Linux kernel 2.4.14 and later versions.
