Re: [hylafax-users] sending faxes in pdf format via e-mail
Changes along these same lines were already committed to HylaFAX CVS (to
become 4.2.2 someday). The configure script and the faxsetup script
both check to see if libtiff's tiff2pdf exists, and if it does, then it
is used instead of HylaFAX's tiff2ps -> ps2pdf conversion.
I ran into similiar troubles as you when I used a recent Slackware
release. I also "fixed" the problem by using libtiff's tiff2pdf.

I work with the scripts that come in version 4.2.0-1 ...I configured the /etc/FaxDispatch file to send an e-mail depending on the device:
case "$DEVICE" in
ttyS0) SENDTO=garamirez@xxxxxxxxxxxx; FILETYPE=pdf;;
In fact the mail arrives with a pdf file, but it's corrupt..
My solution was:
- Make sure you have the tiff2pdf installed
- Also make sure you have sendmail installed and it's working properly
Edit the /var/spool/fax/bin/faxrcvd file, and add the following variable:
Now, comment the lines:
$TIFF2PS -a -O $FILE.ps $FILE > $ERRORSTO 2>&1 # fax2ps out......
$PS2PDF -g$GW\x$GL -r$RW\x$RL $FILE.ps $FILE.pdf > $ERRORSTO 2>&1
and add the following:
$TIFF2PDF $FILE -o $FILE.pdf > $ERRORSTO 2>&1
I'm using Mandrake 10.1 Official
I hope this work for everyone who want to send pdf files...
