OCR engines -- Tesseract and gocr
« on: June 17, 2012, 09:55:44 pm »
Hello.  I'd like to request two OCR engines, good for both gscan2pdf and xsane.  These are gocr and tesseract.
I am using VL7.0 standard with XFCE

I checked Gslapt and found neither unpaper nor gocr.  I have the following sources enabled:
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/packages/
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/extra/
http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.0/patches/

I think it is in the testing repo...just remember do not do a system upgrade with testing repo enable...you can use testing repo to do selected installation or upgrade...

I tried both testing and unstable repositories, and neither unpaper nor gocr was found.
