Fax reports not in english

whenever i receive fax reports , they are in Italian
how to receive English reports

It’s not well documented :expressionless:, try this commands:

config setprop hylafax Lang en_US
signal-event nethserver-hylafax-update

You can find more info here: http://docs.nethserver.org/projects/nethserver-devel/en/latest/hylafax.html

Hi @hany and @giacomo , according to hylafax dictionary :

 less /var/spool/hylafax/bin/dictionary

if you do not specify Lang it will be English by default.

So @hany try

config setprop hylafax Lang ' '
signal-event nethserver-hylafax-update

IMHO it should be the default

You’re right, fixed in v7: config: change default lang to English · NethServer/nethserver-hylafax@727b405 · GitHub

do you mean that only in NS7 it will be corrected?

you’d correct it in 6.X branch too… people will use it for a quite long time, you can’t expect them to poke with CLI for such things

No, fixes will be backported when we close 7a2.

Usually, changes to default configuration should be integrated only when there is a new major version like 7 (or 6.8).
But I agree with you that this is should be consider a bug.

Can you please open a new issue, cherry-pick the commit and open a pull request?
Thank you! :smile:


@alefattorini @giacomo ,

I reinstalled fax server :


is hard coded

Maybe we need the Menu for Languages in feature releases?

even with the webmail client roundcube , when the user login for the first time it’s all Italian
he has to guess where is the settings “in Italian” and then “languages” and changes it back to English
but don’t expect all users to be able to do that right a way

Oh @hany

please run

yum install nethserver-lang-en

or form

Administration => Software Center install English support.

No is not, it’s a prop and it’s inside the db.


Roundcube will use the default language of you browser (see nethserver-roundcubemail/root/etc/e-smith/templates/etc/roundcubemail/config.inc.php/60USER_INTERFACE at master · NethServer/nethserver-roundcubemail · GitHub) , but you can also change it from Settings page.
