Thanks for a quick reply. I'm anxious to get back to work with it. I've got a lot of papers that I wrote years ago, and have long since lost the digital files (through crashes, a stolen laptop, etc.)
The file named there is a name that I file that I named. It is a graphic file, a scan (cleaned up and trimmed in Gimp) of a printed page. It belongs to user #1000 (me) and is rw.
Mint13 Mate is the newest version that I have been able to get to run well on my computer, and tesseract`3.02.02 is the version that is in the repositories.
I tried to run the lengthy command as you typed it, and it appears that liblept3 can't be found in the repositories.
Ill try reinstalling what I can reinstall, and see if that helps. But (to me) the mystery of this lies in the fact that it was working just fine, and I did not change my methods, but it stopped. Unless, I may be leaving out an option in the command line? But I have been unable to find any adequate explanations about controlling it's operation from the command line.
Thanks so-o-o-o much. I reinstalled, and it appears that is just what it needed. Don't really know why, but it worked.
