Fan overlay working with Pimoroni fan shim

Fri Aug 23, 2019 9:58 am

I now have a Pimoroni fan shim fitted which uses pin 18 , so I added

Code: Select all

 dtoverlay=gpio-fan,gpiopin=18,temp=65000
and it just works :-)
Now I'm sitting here wasting time watching it start and stop 8-) :lol:

I was going to ask if you where having a bad day but then I thought this would be more entertaining than the tripe on TV most days. Neat solution and bookmarked - thanks for the solution.

Does Pimoroni document that on their website? If not you may want to tweet this to them.

First class, I'll give that a go tonight !! The python tools currently used look nice with the bright lights but there are a lot of dependencies and I'm sitting here with top running looking at it using 2%CPU :)
