View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dell Vostro 1500 with 12.04 fan not working

May 23rd, 2012, 06:17 PM

I am trying to get my Dell Vostro 1500 fan to work in Ubuntu 12.04. I have a dual boot system setup with windows. Ubuntu doesn't seem to recognized or find the fan.

I have read through all the forms and threads I can find on installing i8k and grellm. I was able to install grellm and i8k but the plugin for grellm-i8k is not being installed because its not available and cannot seem to find it on any site.

I have also tired to install dellfand through the below site, but the problem with that is that the site is no longer available and I cannot find the dellfand package any where on the net.


Can someone please help with how to get my fan working in 12.04?
