Hi, I’m trying to control the fan speed in my laptop (Huawei Matebook D14). I’ve installed lm_sensors, and run sudo sensors-detect. However, when I try to run sudo pwmconfig, I get this output:
# pwmconfig version 3.6.0 This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm) controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm.
We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls. The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you physically verify that the fans have been to full speed after the program has completed.
/usr/bin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
How do I get to know which modules are necessary and how do I install them?
I’ve tried both, and both don’t work with weird errors. In NBFC, but my laptop isn’t listed, and I haven’t found a single laptop with AMD hardware (all Intel or NVidia). amdgpu-fan seems more promising, but it throws errors for which there is very little on the web. So I’m giving up for the moment, as the fan works decently even if the sensor is not recognized.
I know your guide and I have followed it but, like others who have replied here, my fan sensor is not detected. You have the 2018 model if I’m correct, I bought it this year, so something in the hardware must have changed.
