View Full Version : Heavy Fan Use Under Ubuntu

November 27th, 2012, 08:56 PM
I have used Ubuntu for may years and find it incredibly frustrating that Ubuntu still haven't sorted out the heavy CPU/Fan Use on laptops. Surely after years of development this kind of issue should be solved by now?

Very disapointing.

most of the time fan speed is set by BIOS I think not Ubuntu in other words its a hardware issue may I recommend change the CPU?

Lol, change the CPU?

I've solved the issue by installing AMD drivers, it's nice to have Ubuntu actually playing nice on a laptop for the first time in over 5 years.

Seriously though, Canonical need to sort this out, there a many threads with people complaining about this issue, it is a real issue and with Canonical's claims of 'avoid the windows 8 nightmare'(okay not spot on but along the same lines) Canonical really need to get this sorted for the type of user that don't know how to use a terminal and aren't advanced pc users.
