I have Xubuntu running on a wireless connection laptop. I would like to send faxes over to a HP All-in-One printer/fax/etc that is connected wireless to the network and also has a phone line connected. Or is there some other simple way to send faxes straight from the computer over the internet.

I can do that by using thunderbird.

Create a new e-mail and at the recipient's address type:

[the fax number]@fax.[your provider].[the code of your country]

An example would be:

12345678910@fax.ontelecoms.gr

Whatever you write on the "subject" space and on the main e-mail body would be your first page.
If you put any attachments (pdf attachments) they will be sent as extra pages.

This works for me just fine and I can send faxes over the internet!:D
