To send a fax directly from LibreOffice, you need a fax modem and a fax driver that allows applications to communicate with the fax modem.

Sending a Fax Through the Print Dialog

  1. Open the Print dialog by choosing File - Print and select the fax driver in the Name list box.
  2. Clicking OK opens the dialog for your fax driver, where you can select the fax recipient.
