I installed Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon over Windows 8 recently on an Acer Aspire E1-570.
Everything seems to be working fine, however I notice that my fan seems to be on at high speed a lot of the time.
Can someone please tell me definitive troubleshooting steps that are relevant to this distro.
Also if there are commands that I can run to get the relevant system information required to troubleshoot the issue it would be great to know these too.
In case it is relevant, the screen brightness applet control wasn't working so I followed steps below - perhaps that altered something?
me@computer ~ $ ls /sys/class/backlight/ acpi_video0 intel_backlight sudo touch /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf sudo gedit /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf and then added this to the file: Section "Device" Identifier "card0" Driver "intel" Option "Backlight" "intel_backlight" BusID "PCI:0:2:0"EndSection
Sensors also seems to be mentioned in other posts so I typed it into the command and this was the output:
me@computer ~ $ sensors coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +44.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 0: +44.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 1: +44.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
