Re: [hylafax-users] How to print a received fax?

We use webmin to view the faxes...you will need to install imagemagick in order to view them.
As for debian viewers; gimp, xnview gqview...most should be able to read those tiff's...

A question about how to manually (e.g. from the command line) print a
received fax (e.g. fax0000000001.tif) that is in \hylafax\spool\rcvd?

From the cmd line, I issued: /usr/bin/tiff2ps -a /path of received
file/fax00000001.tif   but the command gives me an error...essentially
file not found.
I can see the .tif files when is list the directory, along with a
sequence (seq?) file.   What could be going wrong? I don't think its a
permission problem since I issue the cmd as root, and the error message
does not say permission denied....

Printing from faxrcvd script:
I added the following line near the end of faxrcvd script:

/usr/bin/tiff2ps -a $FILE | lpr

However, no fax was sent to the printer.  When logged in as root or user, the printer prints when I issue: cat file.txt | lpr.
Is there a location in the faxrcvd file that is best to place the above line?

What is a relatively simple fax viewer that runs under Debian that one would recommend?  Would I have to do some conversion
of the raw received .tiff file to some other format before using the recommended viewer?
