Recently I had to upgrade my IBM T40 from Mint11 to Mint13 with Mate and unfortunately te fan control didn't work any more. The fan was active all the time even if there was nothing to do for the CPU. I posted ma issue in this German Forum (Linuxmintusers.de) and got vey useful tips how to solve the issue. Finally I installed tpfanco. That's a very professional tool to control the fan with software.My T40 fan control now works fine again.
