Sometimes my laptop overheats, because fan does not start. Restarting the
kicker by the command:
dcop kicker kicker restart
results in the fan starting up.
Also, sometimes fan keeps running even when the cpu is not hot at all (as
one can infer by the temperature of the air flowing out). As the kicker is
restarted as before, fan comes to rest.
Any hints about how the two devices are related?
Inspecting the .xsession-errors file, i have noticed a series of messages
that might be related to the above observations. Here is one of them:
