What works

The installer only works with some workarounds (if you disable the rollback in the temp folder, see details in the Workaround section).

What does not

  1. installation process (see workaround)
  2. Scanning integration


    Thanks to a previous tricks from gymka, the workaround on Ubuntu 17.10 is basically the same:

    Installation workaround by gymka:

    1. Extract self extracting package (ABBYY_FineReader_10_PE.exe)
    2. In a terminal go to folder where you extracted files (default ~/.wine/drive_c/users/your_user/temp/ABBYY FineReader 10):

      cd '~/.wine/drive_c/users/your_user/temp/ABBYY FineReader 10'

    3. Launch setup with disabled rollback function:

      wine msiexec /i 'ABBYY FineReader 10 Professional Edition.msi' DISABLEROLLBACK=1

      Now finereader will install and won't delete files (finereader deletes files because the setup ends with an error).
    4. Now you need to launch TrigrammsInstaller.exe file in folder where finereader is installed (in my case ~/.wine/drive_c/program files/ABBYY FineReader 10/).
      Launch it from there, there will be no GUI, it will just create language files. (Without this, if you try to OCR text you'll get "no english.amt found".)

    What was not tested

    1. OCR in languages other than English
    2. Output of some format (epub, etc.)

      Hardware tested


      • GPU: Intel
      • Driver: open source

      Additional Comments

      Just follow the workaround and you'll be fine.
