you will have to install gdesklets in your machine and use this cpu feature (http://gdesklets.gnomedesktop.org/categories.php?func=gd_show_app&gd_app_id=124) and to install it you can use this how to (http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=20914&highlight=gdesklets) :D

You can also try the i8kutils and the gkrellm plugin w/gkrellm. Both are available from freshrpms.net and other fine repositories.

Was gonna post but found this thread. I've got the same issue, my laptop gets too hot and I do need to find some linux fan controlling utility. I have gdesklets installed so this seems the quickest way forward. However, when I went to the above link, it's disappeared.

What was this desklet called?

Thanks, but I already had found that site, but by the time I had, I found the proper dell utility (with a gnome applet) so the temp and controls are displayed in my menu bar :)

i am running the delli8k plugin for gkrellm on my xps m1710 - and i gotta say - being able to control the fans has knocked the temp inside this notebook down to really sweet levels - before the main die was running >45C now it is down to 25C - and the nvidia gpu was >65C - now it is at 45C........
