IBM Thinkpad X60, SSD, using synaptic package manager I installed 'thinkfan' but it didn't work so then tried 'fan control'and it didn't work.They both ouput errors;

When troubleshooting, start by doing a web search for your error. Here's the first Searx result:

See if that helps.

It has installed but I cannot find/ start it. Is this a command line only prog ?

I installed thinkfan with synaptic.

How do I open thinkfan ? I assumed there would be a simple GUI.
