Hello, newb here... I tried to get this to work awhile back and couldn't for a few reasons, one being it didn't seem to support my model at the time (P7xxTM1) the other reasons being I'm dumb =)

I'm trying again and thought I finally had it but when I type in sudo clevo-xsm-wmi I get: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'

Trying to search for what to do next but any help would appreciated!

After installing core/linux-headers 5.8.3.arch1-1, the command find /usr/lib/modules -name version now gives the following result:


This eventually leads to clevo-xsm-wmi.ko.gz installed in unexpected place. Plz update PKGBUILD to fix this.

... And it seems the errors that @mjtarch encounters is the same issue too.

Hi kwrazi. Thanks for putting that in. I'm installing against AUR in Manjaro, but failing.

Clevo N8xEJEK appears to be in a pull request in the offical repo. I've incorporated that as a patch in 1.1-3.

Hi. Any chance you could add Clevo N8xEJEK to the patch too? And instructions on how to apply it? Thanks

clevo-xsm-wmi 1.1-2 back patch code to include more clevo models including P7xxTM1. Let me know if it works as I don't have these specific laptops.

Can you please add the P7xxTM1 model? I tested it, works great.

On a P651RP6-G this causes fan control on the NVIDIA GPU to go completely bonkers. Fan speed stays at minimum until the card reaches 80 degrees (Celsius) then runs at max.

Currently in the process of figuring out how to revert this mess. Uninstalling alone does *not* work.

Works great on my Schenker P507 (Clevo P651RP6-G)
