Update to version 1.8.0. Tesseract 3.05 is now recognized.

Downgrading to tesseract-3.04.01-2 solves the issue

Hi, sorry for the delay, I'm really busy at the moment. Could you send me a mail (Look in the PKGBUILD for my email address) ?

Any news on gscan2pdf not recognizing tesseract?
The issue persists.
Downgrading to 1.7.1 does not solve things.

I just installed the 1.7.2-1 version but it doesn't recognise tesseract being installed. I get a message at startup saying that no OCR is installed although tesseract (including langpacks) is and it is working fine with e.g. paperwork.
Installing gocr or cuneiform solves the issue but those ocr engines don't produce usable results for me.
I registered an account with the forums and opened a thread there - probably should have done that first.

Update to version 1.7.1 (sorry for the delay).

Yes, Just tried editing the local PKGBUILD to use 1.7.1 and now save works again for me.

I just upgraded to this version (1.7.0) and now save fails for me when I click the button in the dialog, with this message:

WARN - *** unhandled exception in callback:
*** Modification of non-creatable array value attempted, subscript -1 at /usr/bin/vendor_perl/gscan2pdf line 2661.
*** ignoring at /usr/bin/vendor_perl/gscan2pdf line 416.

I see that there is now a 1.7.1 version available at the upstream url. Maybe that would work better?
