    It's just as they say and it works, (did you install html2ps?), but this belongs on the avantfax fora. not here, Elastix does NOT include Avantfax at this point.

    The problem about the cover page is related to the fonts you use.
    I have done some covers using freehand but most of the fonts don't work well.
    There are some fonts that work and some others that don't. Read in the Avantfax sourceforge forum and you'll find out more.

    I got some success but not all.

    1- Installed the Winprint Hylafax and configured it.
    2- Made my cover with Openoffice draw with the fields XXXX-to etc...
    3- Printed to a file that i named mycover.ps
    4- Check with a text editor to remove the space like this: (XXXX-comments0 )

    At this point i can fax my cover but a problem remains, my fileds seems to be too smalls and the comments for example From: Lawrence Shaw looke like from Lawrence (big dot)

    I still need a bit of help

    I'm glad to hear it is working. :)

    But I think you should explain how you did it, so it can help other future forum users.

    Finally a success here how i did.

    First install html2ps

    1- Unzip html2ps in /usr/src/html2ps
    2- cd html2ps-1.0b5
    3- chmod +x install
    4- ./install

    Verify if its installed in the proper directory where php expect it to be: /usr/local/bin/html2ps

    secound Personlalise coverpage.html wich is in the /var/www/html/avantfax/images/coverpage.html

    I made my modifications with macromedia dreamweaver

    third

    1- edit the file /var/www/html/avantfax/include/local_config.php

    2- comment out with (//) the line 245
    3- change the line 252 to this: $USE_HTML_COVERPAGE = true;

    Reboot and it good to go.

    Thank to everyone who helped me

    Mucha gracias
