How to move sikulixide-2.0.4.jar to new location and still use OCR

Asked by Chris Kosieracki on 2020-05-30

2.0.4-2020-03-14_08:01/Mac10.14.5/Java8(64)1.8.0_251-b08

I just upgraded from 1.1.4 to 2.0.4. I had a lot of trouble getting Tesseract installed and working with Sikulix. When I finally succeeded, I unfortunately had the sikulixide-2.0.4.jar file in a sub-folder in my Downloads folder. I'd really like to move it to my Applications folder, but when run from there I get sent to the https://github.com/RaiMan/SikuliX1/wiki/macOS-Linux:-Support-libraries-for-Tess4J-Tesseract-4-OCR page whenever any OCR functions are attempted.

Is there way to get it functional from the Applications folder without having to uninstall and reinstall everything?

Thanks!

How and where did you install Tesseract?
Did you follow the instruction on the mentioned page. The brew-way should not make any problems.

My main dev system is macOS 10.15.

Just made some tests: works as expected.

IMHO it does not make sense to move the SikulixIDE jar to the Applications folder, since it is not a regular application (will not show up in LaunchPad).

I did use brew to install Tesseract, but do not recall where (or if) I designated it to be installed..

I'm seeing libtesseract.dylib in the Applications folder in the root of the hard drive. The various eng. files are in /Users/cckozie/Library/Application Support/Sikulix/SikulixTesseract/tessdata/configs.

The jar file doesn't need to be in Applications, that's just where I've been having it before, and i've been using a Sikuli launch icon on the task bar to launch it.

What I really want is to get it out of my Downloads folder to make it easier to keep that folder clean. Would I need to uninstall and reinstall both Sikulix and Tesseract in order to accomplish that?

Thanks.
