Hi @mushoku-ningen, unfortunately I didn't. I stopped using Linux on the Mac Mini 2018 eventually. At the moment - it seems - the applesmc code in the Kernel doesn't get a lot of updates. So what Kernel are you on by the way? You can check with uname -a. Just for reference for any future visitor to this page.

I finally solved it
the problem was that Apple moved SMC functionality into the new T2 chip which I and you have in the mac hardware
just add this kernel module to your linux https://github.com/MCMrARM/mbp2018-etc/tree/master/applesmc

Hello I have an MacPro, very old, and I work on the upper-layers of this apple-smc module (mbpfan) , the original : The inspiration... The Core!

My Repository Forked is : My Repo of mbpfan

okay it's just started today but ...
I add features and better support around the fancontrol of this...

  • Add presets of configuration (for keyboard shortcuts or else)
  • An templated config-tool to never open the config file manually
  • An daemon for checking sensors and automaticly ajust settings(more long so not finish before a lot of days)
  • An Emergency Shutting down include
  • An API for made an remote-app (To be tranquilize about the status of Temperatures in your Mac, and that, anywhere one this fucking planet !!! .... if you have an internet connection ..of course...)

I'm new in term of activity on github, and I search contacts, I have ... socials difficulty's and I know not a lot of people in the field of my main skill... I feel that very sad...

What do you think @pklaus ?
