"The GFAX project aims to provide a free front end to the various facsimile programs available for Linux and other operating systems that use the GNOME project. GFAX provides the familiar 'pop up' window and phone book support when one 'prints' to a 'fax' printer.
"efax-gtk is a GUI front end for the 'efax' fax program. The program can be used to send and receive faxes, and to view, print and manage faxes which have been received or sent, and has its own built-in addressbook. To use it you must also have efax and ghostscript installed. It uses the Gtk+ and Gtkmm GUI libraries."
"FaxView features easy to use managers for both incoming and outgoing faxes, file annotation, graphical icons, extensive help, a menu bar, configurable looks, and lots of other user-friendly goodies. It now just looks good. And efax's phone book is supported too with a phone book editor."
"TkFax-0.91 was written by Hang-Bae Kim as a tcl/tk GUI for sending and receiving faxes with mgetty+sendfax running on Unix/FreeBSD/Linux. We are now making it to work with efax, tha supports Class 1, 2 or 2.0 fax modems, whereas mgetty+sendfax does not support Class 1 modems."
"MailAndFax is used by dot-qmail to send a mail via efax. You must have qmail and efax running to use MailAndFax."
"Xfax is a X-Windows fax program, including a faxviewer, a faxprinter and a faxconverter from various formats to fax G3 format. It supports frontpage generation in 3 modes (Ascii, Postscript, TeX/LaTeX), and enables the user to forward a list of documents of various types (Ascii files, TeX/LateX files, PostScript or PDF documents, images...). Xfax is based on the efix/efax tools by Ed Casas, but it is also possible (with some minor modifications) to make it work with Hylafax, Netfax or some other commandline oriented faxprogram." gefax
"gefax is a easy frontend for efax. With efax you can send faxes over your modem to someone else."
"This [perl] script is a wrapper around the 'fax' script, for use in receiving faxes. The script will call 'fax answer', and when a fax has been received, convert it to a JPEG image, and mail it to me."
