How to install gosseract to CentOS 7

go golang tesseract-ocr

What is this document for?

"gosseract" is a Tesseract-OCR wrapper for Golang, and this document is for an issue reported to "gosseract"

github.com

Reproduce the issue

Set up environment for simulating CentOS

# because I'm using MacOS
% docker-machine create -d virtualbox goss-test
% eval $(docker-machine env goss-test)
% docker run --rm -t -i library/centos:centos7

##
# Dive into CentOS
##

try to install Golang itself

[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# yum search go | grep golang
[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# yum install -y golang
[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# go version
go version go1.6.3 linux/amd64
# successfully

try to get gosseract

[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# go get github.com/otiai10/gosseract
package github.com/otiai10/gosseract: cannot download, $GOPATH not set. For more details see: go help gopath

OK, set $GOPATH

[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# export GOPATH=/

[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# go get github.com/otiai10/gosseract
go: missing Git command. See https://golang.org/s/gogetcmd
package github.com/otiai10/gosseract: exec: "git": executable file not found in $PATH

OK, install git

[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# yum install -y git

[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# go get github.com/otiai10/gosseract
go build github.com/otiai10/gosseract/tesseract: g++: exec: "g++": executable file not found in $PATH

OK, install g++

[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# yum install -y gcc-c++
[root@2bc64375ee2c /]# go get github.com/otiai10/gosseract
# github.com/otiai10/gosseract/tesseract

[root@2bc64375ee2c /]#

OK, the problem is reproduced now

Solution

Install tesseract-ocr.

Libraries have been installed in:
   /usr/local/lib

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR`
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_LIBRARY_PATH` environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH` environment variable
     during linking
   - use the `-Wl,-rpath -Wl,LIBDIR` linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf`

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

OK, it's almost there. Now we need traineddata for eng.
