How to fax using PyQT 3.16

Applies To
HPLIP Version: 
0.9.11 through 1.6.12
Printers with fax capability
Linux OS Distribution(s): 
Ubuntu 6.10, Fedora Core 6, or any OS using PyQT 3.16

NOTE: This has been fixed in HPLIP 1.7.1.

Problem: There is a possible problem with HPLIP and PyQT 3.16 which may cause faxing (and other functionality of HPLIP) to stop working.

Workaround: Faxing should work from the command line. Example:

hp-sendfax -n -p <fax queue> -f <fax number> <files>

Workaround 2: KDEprintfax users can follow this guideline:

Configure kdeprintfax
Fax System: "other"
Command: "hp-sendfax -pPRINTERNAME -f%number -n %files"
