Re: Fan control on amilo pi 2530
It's not the fan that's being controlled better in Windows, it's the management of the processor speed. Since Windows allows the processor to drop to idle, it cools down and the fan slows down. It's a Linux kernel problem that does not provide the same level of support.
To reduce runtime temps, we used to recommend installing Jupiter -- but that has been abandoned.
Instead, you can try usinf tlp instead.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw
Ubuntu 16.10 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
