I'm by no means an expert with Linux. Have you looked at your efax.rc
file. Debian puts it in /etc/efax.rc. This file has to be setup
properly if you plan to use efax once the machine is up. I have found
you need to reboot the machine before you see changes in efax. Again,
there may be a better way, but that has been my experience, make a
change and reboot the box.
Hope this helps,
I'm brand new to Linux, so you're doing better than I am.
I didn't find a file named /etc/efax.rc, but I did find
/etc/efax-gtk.rc. Since I'm using efax-gtk as the front end for efax
that seemed reasonable to me, but maybe I'm wrong. I looked through the
file, and it looked to me as if it set the defaults for the program.
Changes in efax-gtk don't seem to be reflected back in /etc/efax.rc, so
I'm not sure how that helps or how I would need to change it.
Rebooting after making a change was often required in Windows, so I've
assumed it worked the same in PCLinux.
