Using Tessarct-ocr with Ubuntu and Gutsy

In my previous posts, I talked about installing tesseract-ocr on Ubuntu, I played and spent some time with it. It seems to have failed on my assessment. I don’t want to blame ocr program for it. It my be that I may not have configured it correct. I have read a number of entries on tesseract-ocr on Ubuntu. And feel it may be just my configuration and scanning problem. I would spend some time later next month to see if I can figure it out. More later on the same.

I would take this opportunity to talk about upcoming ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy). I looked at the release notes for 7.10 Release candidate and I would like to point out few things I am waiting for:-

It would make dual display easier to configure (with the help of Graphical configuration tool for X) and projector friendly .Although I regularly use Ubuntu with dual monitor at home, I have failed to use a projector with Ubuntu 7.06. Hopefully xrandr would change it.

As a windows user at work, I am used to plug and play support for all kinds of device. Something which doesn’t happen as effective in Ubuntu. The plug and play support for printer is great work in the right direction. Let’s see how it works.
