Gfax-0.6beta4

Application

Gfax Gfax-0.6beta4

Description

Gfax is a pop up fax application for Gnome. It supplies the familiar pop up window when printing to a fax printer. Gfax currently works with Hylafax.

Enhancements

The send druid now displays all the numbers that you have choosen to send

the fax to. Each number in the list is preceded with a check mark which allows you to deselect numbers in your list. For example:

  • Print to a fax to send it.
  • Press the "Phonebook" button and select a phonebook from the "Phone Books" list and press "OK".
  • You should now see all the numbers that were in your phone book.
  • Deselect desired numbers by toggling the checkmark off.

Numbers may be "built up" by continually selecting phone books, phone book items or manually entering a number in the entry provided.

Stretching the druid expands the list properly.

Other changes to the send druid include the ability to change the facsimile resolution, email address and notification feature. Notification and resolution settings previously didn't get transmitted to hylafax, they are

now working.

Other changes:

  • Send druid now displays numbers to send instead of "MULTIPLE NUMBERS."
  • Added toggle to send druid, you can now deselect numbers.
  • Resolution setting is now functional for Hylafax.
  • Email notification is now functional for Hylafax.
  • Changed spool directory location to /var/spool/gfax
  • Set "Rules Hint" in glade file so lists follow theme.
  • Added phonebook support to "New Fax" function.
  • Clear "New Fax" page properly if switching to main and back.

Fixes

*Don't delete your file when sending the file from the "New Fax" fucntion.
*Don't delete your file if piped in from the command line. *Delete Job button was active when no jobs to delete. *Delete item button active when no items selected. *Removed modal setting from About dialog. *When adding numbers from a phone book in the send druid it wouldn't display a single number if the organization was not set.
