The "cups backend" has the problem of the cups deamon or HylaFAX backend
not having access to to the user's display.

I don't know of any, but I'm sure you could easily whip up a simple
sendfax wrapper with {,g,k}dialog and sime simple shell...

I use the following:

		kdialog --title "Send FAX to:" "$@"

	NUM=$(DIALOG --inputbox "Phone number" "fax")
	if [ -n "$NUM" ]
		OUTPUT=$(sendfax -n -d "$NUM" $*)
		DIALOG --msgbox "$OUTPUT"
		DIALOG --error "No number entered"

Which I have set as a "special printer" in KDE:
	command: $HOME/bin/fax-dialog %in
