Re: Laptop gets too hot and fan won't stop on Ubuntu 12.10
They are not identical even though they have a lot in common. Have seen recent threads from others where stuff works OK in Mint 13 but doesn't in Ubuntu 12.10.

It's good that you just tried out 12.10 instead of upgrading to it -- since there still is NO rollback capability in Ubuntu. It's generally a bad idea to upgrade to a new Ubuntu version for the first few weeks after it comes out as there are always new bugs.
Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
