Hello,

Fan control is not working on my Asus Zenbook UX461U. I tried to set up fan control today using sensors-detect and pwmconfig. Here is the full output of both.

sensors-detect:

# sensors-detect revision 6284 (2015-05-31 14:00:33 +0200)
# System: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. UX461UN [1.0]
# Kernel: 4.18.19-100.fc27.x86_64 x86_64
# Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz (6/142/10)

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
unless you know what you're doing.

Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): Yes

Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): yes
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'...               No
Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No

Trying family `ITE'...                                      No

Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces
through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things.
We first try to get the information from SMBIOS. If we don't find it
there, we have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such
interfaces. This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI
interfaces? (YES/no): yes
Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0...                      No
Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No

Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): yes
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290...       No
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290...       No
Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290...                   No
Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290...                   No

Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
monitoring devices ...

A. status

  /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed

B. please install fancontrol and hardeare support ASUS Fan driver install test in Fedora29s but...not asus

 (1) check - ASUS fan driver for Linux, also it's depending on the status, you should check your support.

  https://github.com/dhil/asus-zenfan
  https://github.com/daringer/asus-fan

  # cd  /usr/src/
  # wget https://github.com/daringer/asus-fan/archive/master.tar.gz
  # tar zxvf master.tar.gz
  # mv asus-fan-master asus_fan-master
  # cd asus_fan-master
  # dkms add -m asus_fan -v master

  Creating symlink /var/lib/dkms/asus_fan/master/source ->
             /usr/src/asus_fan-master

  DKMS: add completed.

  # dkms install -m asus_fan -v master

  Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...

 DKMS: build completed.

 asus_fan.ko.xz:
 Running module version sanity check.

    - No original module exists within this kernel
  - Installation
    - Installing to /lib/modules/4.19.8-300.fc29.x86_64/extra/
      Adding any weak-modules

 depmod.....

 DKMS: install completed.

 # cd /usrsrc/asus_fan-master/misc
 # echo asus_fan >>/etc/modules
 # cp asus-fan-create-symlinks.sh /usr/local/sbin/asus-fan-create-symlinks.sh

 (2)  example - thinkpad supply fan driver - thinkfan
 (3) fedora can be use fancontrol daemon with lm_sensors

C. run daemon # systemctl enable fancontrol # systemctl start fancontrol

D. system status.... check daemon in system

 $ sudo systemctl status fancontrol

I tried to find fan drivers for my laptop but apparently they are not available (unless there is somewhere that I failed to find). However, the computer has not yet overheated because the BIOS has robust fan control. If it starts to overheat, I could always turn up the fan speed there. Is it perhaps okay to leave it? My computer usually stays at about 40 °C across all four cores.

F27 has reached end of life, it's obsolete. Install at least F28, or better yet F29, and try with this upgraded software.
