Received faxes always in landscape mode

Postby aaronmeehan » Mon Apr 13, 2009 1:34 pm


We're testing free fax for asterisk here, hopefully to eventually replace a callweaver setup that we're using for our clients' faxes.

So, what's odd is that all of the tif files that are written are in landscape format, and the end of each fax is cut off. This is a debian ubuntu hardy OS running in a xen domU. Naturally, libtiff packages are installed. Asterisk is, using pentium3m optimized module

Any clues? :) I can't find any information in the docs as to how exactly the fax modules interact with the system's tiff library or tools.

res_fax_digium includes the Commetrex TIFF library for reading and writing TIFF files. libtiff isn't necessary.

Always? What's sending you those faxes? What is the sending format? A4, Legal, Letter?

Is this specific to (Free) Fax For Asterisk and not spanDSP?
