    Re: Linux OCR solution

    Hi, I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx. I've just installed the .deb from nalin's link. There were no errors during the install process, however, nothing happens when I click on the short cut in the applications menu.

    I tried starting from the terminal with the command:
    Code:
    lios
    and got:
    Code:
    lios: command not found
    Then I tried:
    Code:
    xxx@ubuntu-10:~$ cd /usr/share/lios/
    xxx@ubuntu-10:/usr/share/lios$ ./lios.py
    and got the errors:
    Code:
    import: unable to read X window image `': Resource temporarily unavailable @ xwindow.c/XImportImage/5020.
    ./lios.py: line 8: global: command not found
    from: can't read /var/mail/espeak
    from: can't read /var/mail/multiprocessing
    from: can't read /var/mail/subprocess
    ./lios.py: line 13: syntax error near unexpected token `('
    ./lios.py: line 13: `directory = ("%s/LIOS" % (os.environ['HOME']))'
    I would really like to test this software out, can anyone help with this, please?

    I have the same problem in Kubuntu 12.04. How did you actually un-install it? Thank you!

    Google Docs will read and convert PDF image texts to editable text files, however it leaves much to be desired as the formatting gets a little crazy and the load times are not quick. I would definitely prefer a native OS solution out of the box with Ubuntu.

    I was looking for good OCR software to convert scanned PDF files to text and tried ABBYY Fine Reader online but after converting 3 pages the free trial stopped. Before that I had tried pdfocr and tesseract. Then I discovered this thread. This is working very well. Thank you.

    Re: Linux OCR solution

    I downloaded the 1.7 version and installed through Ubuntu Software Center on a Ubuntu 12.04 x64 machine.
    When I launch the program I got this error:

    Code:
    ~$ lios
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/lios", line 3, in <module>
        from lios.lios import *
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/lios/lios.py", line 12, in <module>
        import gnomecanvas
    ImportError: No module named gnomecanvas
    Can someone help try this OCR?

    I have missed OCR with Ubuntu and was delighted to find this thread. Sounds like there are still some quirks, but I hope to give this a try soon.
