    hi,

    Finally found OS that work with efax-gtk and conexant modem with driver form linuxant.

    I have gcc c++ problem in installing efax-gtk on ubuntu 9.10.
    Ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx goes perfectly as you can install efax-gtk from ubuntu software center, and install driver from linuxant ( note : only 14.4 K out of 56K  as you need to buy licence to make it in full bandwidth)

    now that I got those two, I change ownership of the device, add myself in fax group, but fail to add in dialup group ( system says there is no dialup group)

    and when I click standby , this is the result :

    efax-0.9a: 21:28:36 finished - invalid modem response
    efax-0.9a: 21:28:36 opened /dev/modem
    efax-0.9a: 21:28:37 Error: can't determine fax modem class support
    efax-0.9a: 21:28:37 finished - invalid modem response
    efax-0.9a: 21:28:37 opened /dev/modem
    efax-0.9a: 21:28:38 Error: can't determine fax modem class support
    efax-0.9a: 21:28:38 finished - invalid modem response
    efax-0.9a: 21:28:39 opened /dev/modem
    efax-0.9a: 21:28:40 Error: can't determine fax modem class support

    *** Stopping send/receive session ***

    Can you please help me here ?

    Thanks for your attention

    and if I change the serial device in modem setting tab to ttySHSF0 as suggested by linuxant, the result :

    efax-0.9a: 21:32:35 opened /dev/ttySHSF0

    i tried setting printer  from terminal

    /usr/sbin/lpadmin -p FaxPrinter -E -v socket://localhost:9900

    and when i print document on openoffice, efax-gtk result :

    Socket running on port 9900
    Print job received on socket
    efax-0.9a: 23:17:56 Error: can't read multi-strip TIFF files
    efax-0.9a: 23:17:56 Error: missing offset to TIFF data
    efax-0.9a: 23:17:56 finished - unrecoverable error
    Print job received on socket
    efax-0.9a: 23:21:05 Error: can't read multi-strip TIFF files
    efax-0.9a: 23:21:05 Error: missing offset to TIFF data
    efax-0.9a: 23:21:05 finished - unrecoverable error

    looks like i got the ps file throug the socket , only that somehow efax-gtk fails to execute tiff file ( same thing happened when i choose pdf file to sent)

    Hope this progressing thread is fine

    Cheers,
    Sugi

    You need efax-gtk 3.2.0 or later.  There is an incompatibility in the version of ghostscript used by that particular distribution of ubuntu.

    it works fine.

    efax gtk 3.2.3 works smoothly on ubuntu 10.04 LTS with conexant 56K soft fax modem and driver must be bought from linuxant.

    you may need to update and install some lib files , just follow through and the version is make able.

    can you please comment as I am receiving nothing / blank file when view with gv, although the efax-gtk got the file

    If you actually read this you will see that:

    1. efax-gtk did not "get the file".
    2. your software modem is broken.

    Please note that if you want support on conexant's software modem then you get it from them.  efax-gtk assumes you have a working modem: if you don't, you need to get support elsewhere, and come back after that.
