I have been trying to install Manjaro in a dual boot scenario, and I was trying to set up fancontrol and fancontrol GUI. I have previously, around a year ago, been able to get it to work on Ubuntu. My system is built with an ASUS PRIME B450 PLUS, and I know that the sensor inside it isn’t normally supported, so just like I did on Ubuntu, though through AUR this time, I installed the IT87 sensor, did modprobe, it found it, and then I followed the instructions from the Arch wiki. I ran sudo sensors-detect, it found them, I ran sudo pwmconfig, everything worked perfectly, it found all fans, I saved the configuration file, then I installed Fancontrol GUI, set the fancurves, and started the service.
However, all my fans continued to spin at 100%. I looked around the internet for a solution and I couldn’t find one, but I ran “systemctl status fancontrol”, and it told me the service hadn’t started with an error along the lines of “Couldn’t start PWM for hwmon3/pwm1”. I had the actual terminal output saved to a document, but it was late, I was growing increasingly frustrated and I booted back into Windows and deleted the Manjaro partition, so if needed I can go through the entire process again and provide an exact terminal output, because I really, really want to properly start running Manjaro and it would be a shame for me to give up like this.
I have no idea what the issue could be however. I’ve entertained the thought that it might be because of my hardware setup - I have four DC fans installed in my case, and all of them are connected to an ARGB LED and Fan Splitter that my case came with, and then that fan splitter is connected to the motherboard with a PWM cable. The chassis fans in question are set in BIOS as DC fans, but I’ve had a few issues over on the Windows side with ASUS AI Suite not properly recognizing them. But since Fancontrol worked when I last tried it on Ubuntu 20.04 I don’t know if this can be a hardware issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if more information is needed, I can try to reinstall it and provide it.
