No more NVidia-xconfig in driver 390. How to control the fans?


I have a Geforce GTX 1050 and the Nvidia Driver 390 in a Linux Debian Sid, kernel 4.18. When I run nvidia-settings->GPU-0->Thermal Settings it doesn’t show information but about one of the two fans and it appears always with speed 0 even when the main fan is running. Besodes sometimes the fan is running even when the temperature is 31 °C.

Since there is no more the file nvidia-settings, how can I set cool-bites, control the fans or be able to see both fans of this cards?

This is the card

Thanks in advance for any help.

You’ll have to create an /etc/X11/xorg.conf yourself

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "nvidia"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    Option         "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"
    Option    "CoolBits" "4"

But this won’t really help with your problem as this only allows to set the fans to a fixed speed. The fan curve is hardcoded by the manufacturer of your card.
