Yes....there are multiple references via your favourite search engine...to get you started

This unit claims compatibility with Mint 18.3 & 19.1

The Startech claims compatibility with kernels from 3.16

Hi charroo,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

If you have an external fax modem connecting with a USB or Serial connection and a working telephone line, then you should be able to install the "efax" packages from the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" to send or receive faxes. This assumes that a USB fax modem is properly detected by Linux and any serial port connected modem should work.

If you have a multi-function printer (MFP) with a built-in fax modem connected to a telephone line, then you can send and receive faxes that way. I have an older HP OfficeJet 4110 (MFP) with a scanner, fax modem, etc... and it can still send and receive faxes although it does not print well anymore.

And, as was already mentioned, there are online websites for sending faxes almost everywhere that people can use for free for small faxes like 3 pages or less, or for a small fee sending larger faxes; some of these have an advertisement fax header and some do not. And, if you do a lot of faxes for business or personally then there are "paid for" online fax and telephone services that are reasonably priced that people can sign up for that allow sending and receiving faxes through an email address.

See the previous post:

Hi charroo,

Are you trying to send or receive faxes?

It would help to know more about your system setup. With the external fax modem connected, If you run "inxi -Fxzd" and "lsusb" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

Hi charroo,

I was updating my reply when you answered, please re-read it and provide the information requested. It would also help to know the make and model of the USB modem and if you have any information links (web pages) about it, provide those as well.

just sending for now.
i don't know the manufacturer. it has no name on it.
it came with a disc that i don't have anymore.
i bought it with ebay way back.
it did work on windows back then when i've used windows.

as they say in hebrew: yes, yes. no, no.
which means it would be helpful but don't bother too much is it is too complicated.

Hi charroo,

I do not see anything wrong with the results of the "inxi -Fxzd" console terminal command, so that is a good thing.

Ok, it looks like you have a "Conexant Systems (Rockwell)" external USB modem which is being detected by Linux according to "lsusb".
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0572:1340 Conexant Systems (Rockwell), Inc.
Did you install "efax" and "efax-gtk" and "minicom" and "wvdial" packages from the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)", if not do so now. You then have to select your fax device in efax-gtk, File -> Settings -> Modem Tab.

Run these commands
Add your user to the dialout tty uucp groups

Code: Select all

sudo gpasswd --add $USER dialout

Code: Select all

sudo gpasswd --add $USER tty

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -a -G tty $USER

Code: Select all

sudo gpasswd --add $USER uucp
To find out what your serial device is called in your Linux system (mine is "tty8") and other people were using "ttyACM0", etc...

Code: Select all

sudo mmcli -L
or

Code: Select all

sudo minicom -s
go to serial port setup, look at A Serial Device, mine is "/dev/tty8", hit Esc, exit minicom.
or

Code: Select all

sudo wvdialconf
Bring up efax-GTK, click File -> Settings -> Modem Tab, enter in your serial device name click ok.

You may need to restart your computer or at least logout and back in then restart efax-gtk to see if it works.

If you get a permission error, open a console terminal and run this command below to run the application as root superuser. If you have to run as root superuser, you may have to check the settings and save them again, maybe restart efax-gtk.

Code: Select all

sudo -i efax-gtk
or you can use this command an even create desktop or menu shortcut launchers using this

Code: Select all

pkexec efaxc-gtk

Does this show anything

Code: Select all

sudo dmesg | grep USB

I think the modem drivers are already part of the Linux Kernels.

Re: Can I fax with mint with a usb modem? How?

Hi charroo,

You are welcome...

I do not have any internal or external USB or Serial modems I can find although years ago I used to use them a lot. So, unfortunately, I could not test everything. If the external modem is in working condition, I think it should work well for you and I don't think you need to install any drivers.

My small ancient HP Officejet 4110 (USB connected) has a built-in fax modem with verticle scanner that works very well by itself as a stand-alone fax machine or using the Linux computer HP drivers available in the Mint software repos, super easy to use. I tested it last night by sending a fax to my free "faxbetter" account and it worked great as usual. You might be able to find a used very reasonably priced HP office jet with a working fax modem locally or online and certainly, a new HP OfficeJet with fax modem would work.

I tried many methods to get efax-gtk to work with my HP Officejet and I could not yet get that to work including the console terminal command below perhaps because I already have the HP fax and printer software and drivers loaded and running.

Code: Select all

sudo efax -d /dev/tty8 -t "1-###-###-####" sample-fax-to-send.pdf
If you have an urgent fax to send, try using one of the free online fax sending options.

Keep us posted on your progress.

I am also from Israel, and I also have a Conexant fax modem. It is a USB HSF Modem.
