Alternative to asusctl / rog-control-center

Hey Guys,

I have an Asus ROG Strix G733ZW Laptop. For this reason i use asusctl and rog-control-center. Since version 5.0.0 rog-control-center crash every time if i want to set a fan curve or if want to set them manually. So, it’s unuseable. The Update on version 5.0.1 doesn’t change anything.

Now i want to ask for an alternative for asusctl and rog-control-center, because i don’t know of any.

Here are the output of garuda-inxi

Hi @anon84286452 , Is changing your kernel to Zen kernel can fix the crashing ?

There is a tool named supergfxctl which is used by asusctl , but still i highly prefer asusctl , asus-linux
