1. Remove systemd files:

$ sudo rm /lib/systemd/system/gpu-thermald.service
$ sudo rm /lib/systemd/system/airtop-fpsvc.service

2. Create file /etc/rc.local with the following content:

#!/bin/bash
modprobe i2c-i801
sleep 1
/usr/sbin/airtop-fpsvc
/usr/sbin/gpu-thermald
exit 0

3. Make it executable

$ sudo chmod +x /etc/rc.local

4. Ensure airtop-fpvsc panel is working

$ sudo /etc/rc.local

5. Restart, ensure airtop-fpvsc panel is working
