• Fan Control Asus UX360UAK


    Hi,

    I installed lm_sensors and followed Arch wiki but can’t get any control over CPU Fan.
    The noise is killing me when tasks like browsing.

    It is a new laptop, the sensor is there somewhere :)

  • Fan on Fullspeed looks like Override somehow… may inside Bios?
    If not we can look deeper…

    But looks like it is a Zenbook? they do not have usable fancontrol aviable. But there are some hacks to do this:

  • It is not always in full speed, but makes a lot of noise since the fan is already spinning even on idle situation.

    Inside BIOS I can see the CPU fan speed, with a fancy fan gif actually. But no way to control it :/

    I already updated bios version

    Since is a UX360UAK and I have no idea what I’m doing… :P

  • Searching on yaourt fan found this:

    35 aur/asus-fan-dkms-git v0.9.1.r54.gd9ccff8-1 (1) (0,00)
        Kernel module allowing to control (both) fan inside various ASUS laptops
    
    

    and

  • I’m going to check them all as well.

  • Can you guys help me install this ?

    The readme is mostly about ubuntu. I’m a bit lost

  • @judd said in Fan Control Asus UX360UAK:

    asus-fan-dkms-git

    This is what the AUR PKGBUILD is installing:

    yaourt -S asus-fan-dkms-git

  • OK. I installed that but nothing changed with sensors. Do I need to configure anything else?

  • do you try systemdservice?

    systemctl status asus-fan.service
    

    If it is disabled start it with:

    systemctl start asus-fan.service
    

    To enable on bootup:

    systemctl enable asus-fan.service

  • Yes I did. The status gives me an error:

  • Sorry, forgot somethings were in portuguese:
    : ln: o destino ‘/tmp/asus-fan-shm/tz1_temp’ não é uma pasta ( the destiny is not a folder)

  • To make shure everything is loaded i would do a reboot first

  • Yes I did that. Same result on systemctl status.

  • I created the missing folder manually but still got an error:

    I created tz1_temp manually*

  • @joekamprad are you still outside? :P

  • You can see here: https://github.com/daringer/asus-fan/blob/master/README.md that your device is not listed there, so i am not shure if this is the reason why your fan is not controlable by this tool…

    Also you can see that the folder you created is empty, it needs to be written by the tool…
    can be that something is missing on configuration or simple the tool is not able to detect your hardware.

    failed to create symbolic link ‘/tmp/asus-fan-shm/tz1_temp/temp1_input’: File exists
    rm: impossível remover ‘/tmp/asus-fan-shm/tz1_temp’: Is a directory
    

    i would remove the folder you created and try again
