    FAN Doesn't work Toshiba U505-S2960 Laptop

    Hi guys,
    I'm pretty new with Linux, but since now I LOVE IT.
    There is just one problem, the fan won't start spinning.
    I have windows 7 ultimate x64 and Ubuntu 9.10 x64.
    It is working in Windows 7 but when I start Ubuntu it doesn't want to work.
    I updated the BIOS but is the same problem.
    Thanks.

    If you're able to use Ubuntu without the fan spinning, you can start with looking into different software which uses the lmsensors package.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ksensors
    is one of them, but here's a list which include more of them.

    If the Linux kernel isn't able to identify your hardware in your laptop very good, no software package will help you in this situation, so let's hope for the best.
