Is there fax software for linux? MS's fax program sucks
It errors out when receiving and won't evn give me an error numbr or oportunity to click.

Or I'll just get an all-in-one, this is asinine.

(I do have a winbloat box for advanced video processing (no reasonable linux equivalent yet) and I also use it for faxing.)

GRR!

3. yes there's fax software in Linux
i havent dealt with Linux fax software in a while, but IIRC it can be tricky to set up.

"hylafax" was the last separate linux fax package i remember using, although SUSE linux running KDE provided me with a nice automagic point n click fax interface.

good luck.

4. Make sure you have the settings correct. Do you have DSL?
