Description David Fraser 2007-10-24 03:08:36 EDT
Description of problem:
kooka, the scanning and OCR program included in kdegraphics, uses a program
called ocrad for OCR. However ocrad is not available in the Fedora repository,
and kdegraphics therefore doesn't depend on it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Kooka (KDE menu -> graphics -> Scan & OCR program (Kooka))
2. Open an Image
3. Click Image->OCR Image
Actual results:
Dialog appears saying "The path to the ocrad binary is not configured yet"

Expected results:
OCR analysis of the image

Additional info:
There is an ocrad package available in the dag repository:
Building from this spec file produced a clean ocrad package, after installation
of which Kooka was able to OCR successfully.

Kooka can also use gocr which is available in the Fedora repository, but because
kdegraphics doesn't depend on it it is not installed automatically; also Kooka
is not configured to use it by default (this can be changed in the settings page).
