Thinkfan update

So I reinstall Bunsenlabs with the helium netinstall, and installed the thinkfan package during the first login.  Once I restarted, I noticed systemd complaining about the thinkfan package not starting.  After looking some stuff up and looking at the "man thinkfan" command, I realized that the default thinkfan.conf didn't have any sensor info, so the thinkfan program wouldn't start because it didn't know which sensors to check.  Once I added the hwmon sensors I found and restarted, systemd didn't complain about the thinkfan package anymore.

To find the hwmon sensors, I ran this command:

find /sys/class/hwmon/*/temp*_input

Then, I added them to my thinkfan.conf like this:

hwmon /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0/temp1_input
hwmon /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon2/temp1_input
hwmon /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon2/temp2_input
hwmon /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon2/temp3_input

I also thought the default temperatures listed are a little bit on the higher side, but that's probably just a personal thing and easy for me to change, so it's not a problem for me.
