You must follow the README included in the package to the letter.

IF AND ONLY IF sensor /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal or fan /proc/acpi/ibm/fan don't work, you must find the missing sensors or fans using:

find -L /sys/class/hwmon -maxdepth 5 -name "temp*_input" \ -print -exec cat {} \; 2>/dev/null for sensors and

find -L /sys/class/hwmon -maxdepth 3 -name "pwm?" \ -print -exec cat {} \; 2>/dev/null for fans

In short, FOLLOW THE README

(Also, if you are running the latest version of Fedora, you will need to add your arguments to the thinkfan.service file, then enable and start thinkfan.service in the terminal)
