Do you have a fax modem and a phone line? E.g. a Class 1, Class 2, or class 2.0 fax modem? Or are you looking for something that would use VOIP (FOIP)? Or perhaps a web service like metrofax? – nealmcb Aug 28 '14 at 17:14

Searching fax in the software center I have found kFax and gtk-eFax, why aren't they good?
