============
Dependencies
============
In order to use all the features provided by Scribo, the following
dependencies should be installed :
- Qt 4.x
- xsltproc
- fop
- GraphicsMagick++ or ImageMagick++
- Tesseract 2.x or 3.x (strongly recommended)
Warning: Tesseract 2.x is still supported however, you may encounter
crashes because of bugs with Tesseract and specific locales. Moreover,
results quality is far from what it can be expected with version
3.x. Thus, we strongly advise you to use Tesseract 3.x if possible.
============
KNOWN ISSUES
============
- Tesseract 2.x may cause crashes with specific system locales. It is
fixed in Tesseract 3.x
- Apple's GCC (llvm-{gcc,g++} 4.2) compiler provided with Mac OS X
Lion (10.7.0) has some trouble with strict aliasing and our code. If
you encounter any crashes or strange behaviors, try compiling with
-fno-strict-aliasing flag.
- On Mac OS X Lion (10.7.0) prefer using GraphicsMagick++ instead of
ImageMagick++. The latter may cause crashes.
