What works

OCR works great.

What does not

Scanning from Finereader didn't work for me. But it's not really a problem since I used a different program to scan, then opened the scanned images in Finereader.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO installing ABBYY FineReader OCR 7.0 PRO

1. Install wine 1.0.1 or higher version

2. Insert the FineReader-CDROM into the drive

3. Open a console

4. In some distributions (slackware and others) you have to mount your cdrom as root, in other distributions (suse, mandriva and others) this step is not needed, but automagically done.

To become root type the command



Then mount the drive with the command

    mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

(or another mountpoint if needed)

Leave root-status with the command


5. Change directory to this drive with the command (different in different flavours of linux)

    cd /media/FR70PRO (suse 10.1)


    cd /mnt/FR70PRO (slackware 10.0)


    cd /mnt/cdrom

6. Enter this command

    msiexec /iABBYY\ FineReader\ 7.0\ Professional\ Edition.msi

7. Installation should begin. Follow the instructions.
