How to View Multiple Page Fax with Ubuntu

I got a fax recently as a .tif image file and when I went to open it on the world’s best operating system ubuntu, and it wouldn’t view anything except page 1! I thought there was a bug with the operating system but it turned out that they actually had, built right into ubuntu a viewer designed specifically to handle this.  As usual, ubuntu is always steps ahead.

So, if you get a digital fax (who uses paper faxes?) this is what you do:

Find the .tif file

fax-tif-example

“Open with” document viewer (which is Evince, if you are wondering)

evince-open-with-2

Enjoy your multiple page fax
