I can't send a PostScript file?

There are mostly three reasons. In all these cases the job is returned to the sender by e-mail with a message like this:

Your facsimile job to +123456789 was not sent because conversion
of PostScript to facsimile failed.  The output from "bin/ps2fax" was:
bin/ps2fax[98]: -q:  not found
You need a tool like Ghostscript to translate the PostScript file to TIFF -- and you don't have this tool or it's not in the place where bin/ps2fax searches for it.
Your Ghostscript lacks the needed driver tiffg3; see the makefiles of Ghostscript how to add a driver.
Your Ghostscript doesn't support the -q option. In this case you should update to a newer version.
