ISDN fax under Linux..
Hi everyone
i have a passive avm fritz isdn card, which i used while on wincoze to send and receive faxes
i wish to keep the same use on linux, however seems i am unable to.
i am running ubuntu feisty fawn, gnome version, and i've installed avm kernel files and capiutils as well as the dependencies needed.
I tried to make it work with efax-gtk, but no luck, since i can't figure out what is the device i should configure there (ttyS0-1-2-3-4-5 as well as ttyI0-1-2-3-4-5 don't work) and while capifax works, and dials out the number correctly, i can't make it send fax.
I tried many different file formats:
jpeg, ps, tiff, G3 tiff, however what i get sent is only a few pages with a bunch of garbage (that should be the source of the file)..
the syntax i use for capifax is:

capifax -v -i my_user -c my_number sending_number file
i couldn't find any information on the file that is to be used, neither on other programs that could be useful.
so my questions are:
can i config efax-gtk to use my isdn?
if not, can i make capifax work correctly?
if not, is there anything else i can use to send a fax?
Thank everyone for his help-

This article might help. This author uses hylafax instead of efax-gtk.

hi, i already tried everything on that page with no luck.
moreover i am not a big fan of hylafax finding it toooo complex to use and with many unnecessary functions.
I prefer to use efax, however i cannot identify to which device is the isdn card connected..
as i wrote before, capifax works, but trying to connect efax to capi20 fails..
