I am using tumbleweed. I’d like to install tesseract.
I don’t want to get involved with “snap” and its dependencies. I’ve used it on Fedora; I was less than enamored.
I’m not interested in getting it from reddit links
This link is dead:
Will someone point me to an opensuse repo where I can snag the ocr?

Here is the project:
This is the download for Tumbleweed from above project:
@jones it’s in the default repositories, just
zypper in tesseract-ocr?
Information for package tesseract-ocr:
Repository : Main Repository (OSS)
Name : tesseract-ocr
Now I feel like doof.
I downloaded the rpm just now and got an error regarding gpg keys.
(I did try the standard command sudo zypper in tesseract-ocr this morning.) It seemed to install but when I tried to run it, nothing happened?? So, I removed it.
After posting here I tried the command again; it’s working now.
Thanks to both of you guys!
Don’t do it manually!
In yast search tesseract5 and the according language files
Use the one-click method
OCR software recommended gimagereader, choose the one-click installation, from Malcolm’s community repository
Tesseract is only a library, if you want a GUI you need gimagereader
Please avoid one-click!!
Many repo problems are the result.
Just add the repo you need and install.
As I mentioned above I tried one of the auto-install links which proved to be dead now. (I generally prefer manual installs.) Again, tesseract is working now.
The links you posted seem to be ok. I have been using tesseract from the command line for years; I like it.
Perhaps next time I fresh install Suse I’ll try one of your links, and maybe I’ll add a gui front end.
Thanks for your post,
