Isn't the resolution a bit low? I mention because I see a ":" confused with
a "z" in the first sentence. Even with that, I think it works quite well.

I suspect if I had this running with the newer tesseract version 3 it would have better recognition, but thus far I can only get version 2 running, mainly I think because I don't have tesseract-data-<languages> built for version 3 for english, german, nor french.
I also installed gimagereader on my 32-bit openSUSE-11.3 LXDE PC (an old athlon-1100 w/1GB RAM). It was a bit difficult, because although it installed ok, when I tried to run I kept getting a "NO GTK found" error, and I could not for a while figure out what was causing that, as I had all sorts of GTK apps/libs installed. In the end, after an install of python-opengl, python-wxGTK-examples, python-poppler, and libwxsvg0 it worked. I don't know which of those allowed it to work.
I note my 64-bit openSUSE-11.3 KDE-4.4.4 PC does not have "libwxsvg0", nor "python-wxGTK-examples", nor "python-opengl". But gimagereader works on my 64-bit openSUSE-11.3 KDE-4.4.4 PC. That leaves "python-poppler" as an app that helped this work, but I find that a bit difficult to believe. Still, I do note in the tarball for gimagereader that "python-poppler" is a gimagereader dependency requirement to build from the tarball, so maybe it is a requirement to run also.
If it was 'python-poppler' that was initially stopping gimagereader to run on my 32-bit LXDE desktop, the error message "No GTK found" was not very descriptive !
Anyway, gimagereader works now on LXDE on this old PC and thats great to see. My thanks again to malcomlewis for packaging gimagereader.

I installed gimagereader on a 3rd PC, this being my 32-bit openSUSE-11.3 KDE-4.4.4 athlon-2800 PC. This install went smoother, because I had a better idea as to what was needed.
When I started, I note the following applications (that I think might be needed) were already installed from OSS repository
- poppler-data (not sure this was necessary)
- poppler-tools (not sure this was necessary)
I also installed from OSS the following:
I also added the repository:
and I added malcomlewis's python repos:
from which I installed:Code:http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/malcolmlewis:/Python/openSUSE_11.3/
As per my practise, after installing from the two new repositories, I then removed the repositories from zypper/yast.
Its possible I installed more apps than needed, but gimagereader does work well now on this 32-bit openSUSE-11.3 KDE-4.4.4 PC.
