Fan Speed Control on Linux With nbfc-linux
Hey y'all

I just added a new package on our repos called "nbfc" for controlling your laptop fans. Seems to be very useful from what I have seen online. Keep in mind that I cannot test it as I do not own any laptops, so it's up to you to do so and let us know via comments below..

On Arch Linux (or XeroLinux) there are some tools that can help with that. (For more information, refer to the Arch Linux wiki.)

#### Do Not Install If you Have No Issues With Fans ####
###### Only Intended For Those Having Trouble With that ! ######

One of options for fan speed control is nbfc-linux, a cross-platform service for notebooks.

This post shows my step-by-step process.

- Install nbfc

Use the Arch Linux User repository to install nbfc-linux if you are not on XeroLinux or if you are, use our repo.

yay -S nbfc-linux
install nbfc-linux

- Enable and Configure nbfc-linux

Start the tool with systemd :
sudo systemctl enable nbfc --now

Find the recommended configuration :
nbfc config -r

For the Acer Nitro 5 for example, there is no exact match. Use this one, as it’s similar to the Nitro 5:
nbfc config --apply "Acer Predator G3-572"

- Recap

This article detailed how to install and configure fan speed control for Linux for an Acer Nitro 5 notebook.

You can simply follow the Arch Linux Wiki. The wiki entry details common pitfalls and alternatives to nbfc.

I do try to help where I can, when I can.
I do this on my own, so I might not have all the answers.
