Controling the Fan from the CLI

Hello All,

I can read the VIM4 CPU temperature by typing cat /sys/class/fan/temp

How can I control the fan from the CLI? let’s say I want to set speed to low/medium/high nothing else. I want to override the “auto” mode.

thanks,

have a look at the fan.sh script.
If you want anything persitently changed (I think) you need to do it in the /etc/rc.local file

where is the fan.sh script located?

It is available on your PATH, so just type “./fan.sh” or look at it using “nano fan.sh”
Never actually checked where it is stored.

Odd.

nano ./fan.sh brings up a blank file.

Maybe it moved?

In a terminal try: find / -name fan.sh 2>&1 >/dev/null

Larry

it is in /usr/local/bin
