Bug Description

************** fixed in 1.1.0

setup now contains a feature to build correct libs on the fly, if the prereqs are fulfilled


*** a possible solution: try to build it yourself
download the helper package here:



If you encounter any problems with the bundled libVisionProxy.so, then you might try to build it on your Linux/Unix system using this package.

1. put the unzipped stuff in any folder
2. in terminal session cd into that folder

3. run ./makeVisionProxy <your Java JDK>
where <your Java JDK> has to be the path to your default Java JDK
… the one that containes the folder include/
(e.g. on Ubuntu 12.10+ 64-Bit: /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64 )

4. hopefully you see some compile messages and one link message without any additional error messages
5. if no errors: replace the libVisionProxy.so in your Sikuli installation with the new one from folder dist
6. if there are any error messages: ok, you have to solve them ;-) and start again at step 3

--- the prerequisites
- you need a valid g++ installation
- you need a valid Java JDK installation
- OpenCV must be installed (preferably version 2.4 with png and jpeg support, but at least 2.2)
- Tesseract must be installed (must be version 3.0+ incl. Leptonica)
- on some Linux installations additional dev packages might be needed to satisfy the includes during compile
- if you get any include problems in compile steps, you might have to add/modify -I.... entries on the includeFolder= line
- the command script expects the libraries in /usr/lib (change the variable libFolderO/libFolderT accordingly if you have other situation)

good luck ;-)

Still having issue with this with 1.0.1 (see attachment). Has the tempfix been removed? Was going to poke into that more.

Sorry, the packages are back now. (Take care, the source changed from 1.0.0 to 1.0.1 because of internal structural changes)
