    This is great software, so simple to set up (once all the compiling issues are sorted). I have now got Efax-gtk working directly from Star office as a printer.
    I searched for fax software for a long time and tried many, struggled with setting up hyla fax etc.
    Efax-gtk should be included with every Linux distro.

    Thanks for your kind remarks.

    Efax-gtk is not included in many distributions (it is available pre-compiled for Mandrake and Debian I think, and in a Russian-language distribution which I know about) partly because it uses the gtkmm library (the C++ bindings for GTK+), and distributors do not usually distribute a library unless they have a number of potential applications on their list which use it.

    I think Fedora Core 3 may include gtkmm, in which case this may change.
