First add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/david.edmundson/ppa/ubuntu karmic main restricted universe multiverse

The easiest way to do this: from the terminal type "sudo kate /etc/apt/sources.list"

Start synaptic or your habitual package manager. Hit reload or update. Then install kservicemenueditor.
Start the service menu editor by typing "servicemenueditor" in a terminal and follow the simple instructions.
The line I provide goes into the last field. It's pretty straightforward... - Mar 24 2014

hey polardude
try this:
do (as superuser):
# echo /usr/local/share /usr/share | xargs -n 1 cp -R wherever_you_installed/tesseract-2.04/tessdata

Explanation: Tesseract may call on the tessdata directory from the /share directory of your filesystem,
so you need to make your language databases available from there.

let me know if this was it.

Hello and thanks in advance,
When i run python setup.py i get

'File "setup.py", line 7, in <module>
from DistUtilsExtra.command import *
ImportError: No module named DistUtilsExtra.command'

and when I try to copy the files manually, I can't get past:

'QApplication::qAppName: Please instantiate the QApplication object first
could not find one or more of the required .ui files. Make sure these files are installed to a directory listed by `kde4-config --path data`'

although I copy the .ui files into the --path data directories.

I've uploaded TextRipper and just wanted to let you know. I hope it satisfies you as much as it satisfies most everybody.

Hello Kayce:
the main difficulty in recognizing handwritten text has less to do with the "font" (caligraphy) but rather whether the letters are joined or distictly separate. Tesseract does a pretty fine job if the letters aren't linked. Try it out for yourself. If you find an engine that beats tesseract in this please let me know.

just copy/paste it into a file, add the execute permissions, then read through the comments to ensure dependencies, etc.
Otherwise, like i said above, in about a week i'll release TextRipper. - Dec 04 2010

Uh, it's not really. Try again.
HOWEVER, soon, very soon, I'll release the new version of Text Recognition now rebaptized TextRipper. It can rip text off anything!
till then,

tjc:
There are only two possible causes for this error message.
The first is treated clearly albeit concisely in the heading comments of the script itself under troubleshooting.
The second is an incompatible image format because either 1) you are missing libraries such as libtiff-dev or 2) the tesseract engine just can't treat that particular file. In this case a conversion usually fails. You must rescan preferrably to a different format such pnm. There have also been reports of success in such cases after switching to the ocrad engine.
Your pick.

Chris:
Thanks for your input.
You'll be happy with Ver 1.1.
It's made for tesseract but still allows for ocrad if you like.

Cursors by KuduK 50 comments

this is in response to Strahlin. Thanks dude. Opensuse can be a pain for installing non-zypper packages. Just one precision if any other suse folks are interested in viewing or editing icons and cursors: make sure you copy the extracted xmc-file (to ~/lib64/...)and not the installed xmc-file that automatically installs to /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plugins.
It actually makes sense: rem we're installing an ix86 tarball on our 64-bit systems... - Mar 12 2010
