Have you rebooted since your last kernel update?
Also check /etc/profile and /etc/rc.local
How about this:https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fan_Speed_Control
- oop, nevermind.
Can you give examples of some of these programs so I can test it out?
Can xsltproc run on a url or do you need to download the file(s) first?
You may have better luck getting an answer if you include the WM/DE in the thread title.(edit: thanks - and sorry I can't be of direct help.)
Ah ... I don't think that should give anything when run as a normal user. I have to be root (or sudo) here for fdisk -l to list anything.
