I bought a Linux capable USB fax modem.

I used it successfully, but I forgot how to fax a document with it.

Modem is a Trendnet TFM-561 U

Efax says "no response from modem"

Can someone help me ?

Attach the modem-fax and type in console:

Code:
dmesg|grep tty


Take note of right device where the modem-fax was attached. Then open efax-gtk, File, Settings, tab Modem. At Serial Device type the right tty dev. Take a look at other Settings. To fax a pdf document drag it in Fax to Send, fill Tel number, Send Fax.

efax-0.9a: 00:08:34 sync: dropping DTR
efax-0.9a: 00:08:38 sync: sending escapes
efax-0.9a: 00:08:44 Error: sync: modem not responding
efax-0.9a: 00:08:44 failed page /root/Documents/Impt_Mazda_CX-7_Info.pdf.001
efax-0.9a: 00:08:44 finished - no response from modem

As said ttyACM0 should work. Open efax-gtk, File, Settings, tab Modem, Serial Device-->ttyACM0.

Again cdc-acm is needed and will auto-load, but now in these newer kernels you don't need usbserial anymore. The needed tty is created by cdc-acm, although it has a different name, like /dev/ttyACM0
