Projects / TkScanFax


TkScanFax is a TCL/Tk GUI fax program in ANSI C/POSIX with support for efax and multiple languages. It helps make the cover page, convert text files, PostScript files, and image files into fax files, and send faxes. It also uses scanners by using backends such as SANE. The efax program supports Class-1 faxmodems.

        efax 'bad units' error
        efax running under some european locales may cause an error,
        'efix error: bad units ...'.
        It is due to the decimal string differ from '.' in some locales.

        If you encountered such an error, update your efax to
        or replace the fax script(/usr/bin/fax).

        Microtek MRS-1200 E6 and sane scanimage command
        I had to edit the scan-drivers subdirectory entry to get it to call my scanner with the sane command "scanimage -v -dmicrotek".
        The preferences saved settings didn't work from the menu.

        I also removed the ampersand after the $command to try to make the gui interface coordinate with the scanimage command. But, that didn't work. I simplified down to just the $command and $file because the the current microtek-mtekscan.tcl file $options and $resolution obviously weren't meant for scanimage options.

        Finally, I gave up because I don't have more time to spend on this. It looks close to working. But, not quite.
