Ubuntu – Laptop can’t control fan speed after 16.04 upgrade

16.04asusfanupgrade

While using 15.10, the fans on my ASUS ROG G501VW-BSI7N25 operated fine at various fan speeds. However, after upgrading to 16.04 it seems that it only has two options, minimum which is used for about 2 minutes after boot, then maximum until I shut the computer down. How can I fix my fan's speed control?

  • I had about the same problem but with the speed of my GPU's fan and all of them over all.I used this LMT program and it started running without any problems even when the laptop is on battery power!
