So I am waiting for Amazon to deliver my fax modem:
U.S. Robotics USR5637 56K USB Controller Dial-Up External Fax Modem with Voice
and I am wondering how I will get it up and running? It has official linux support.
On a Debian distro, I would install efax and efax-gtk, but I don’t see them in the Manjaro repo.
Yeah, where I live, some orgs and some people still use faxes.
This is a reader comment from Amazon, from 4 years ago:
This is a Real Hardware Modem within a USB form without requiring an external power source.
For Linux, recompile your kernel for including USB Modem CDC ACM support; or navigate to Device Drivers > USB support > USB Modem (CDC ACM) support. If you’re using a binary Linux distribution, you may need to additionally load the cdc-acm.ko driver/module.
