how to install Thinkfan in Lubuntu 17

#1 Post by xynxnex » Sat Dec 16, 2017 3:05 pm

Hi, I have a Thinkpad T43 with Lubuntu17.10 and want to install Thinkfan in order to control the fan by the temperature sensors, but nowadays there only seems to exist a version of Thinkfan that is a bunch of source files for C++, https://sourceforge.net/projects/thinkfan/files/

In this forum people wrote about installing Thinkfan with apt-get install, which would be more understandable, but that version doesn't exist anymore?

Or I used several hours of trying to find out how to install the stuff from the above link, but the readme file is very short and doesnt make sense to me. It seems to suggest that you need a c++ compiler or so.

Is there anybody here that has the version that was easier to install.
Or can explain a linux newbie like me how to install with those .cpp sourcefiles?
