Hi
In synaptic you have gocr, clara. ocrad (and probably some more)

A good article here: http://groundstate.ca/ocr

There must be something wrong with the forum. Nick posted almost an hour before me, but when I posted I saw this as unaswered...

Good news for those who cannot compile YAGF source stuff - get the .deb file and run :wink:
