Recognizing text in a linux GUI

Asked by Kranti on 2017-01-07

Hi,

I have automated an Linux GUI based application using sikuli libray.

later because of an upgrade the fonts in the GUI has changed, for this scenario i cannot use image based automation tools, as color and font of text within the GUI changes frequently. it will be easy if i can search for an element using text instead of image.

Does SikuliLibrary support text search on GUI?

Regards,
Kranti

Yes, but not reliable. Results are better in whitish background + black font combinations when comparing to other color combinations

Can you help with this problem?
