Bug Description

New installation of raring. ocrfeeder worked under raring previously, but now complains as follows:
barry@raring:~$ ocrfeeder
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ocrfeeder", line 31, in <module>
    from ocrfeeder.studio.studioBuilder import Studio
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ocrfeeder/studio/studioBuilder.py", line 21, in <module>
    from ocrfeeder.util import lib
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ocrfeeder/util/lib.py", line 23, in <module>
    import Image
ImportError: No module named Image

I have checked, and the python-imaging is installed and up-to-date for python 2.7. I imagine python has changed recently ....

Rm bug duplicate of one specifically for Raring, which is closed presicely for that: no more support in Raring. This bug is present in Trusty, as documented by Pablo San Martin, and i am experiencing the same problem in Utopic.

Fix: replace line "import Image" with "from PIL import Image" in the following 6 files:
/usr/share/pyshared/ocrfeeder/util/graphics.py
/usr/share/pyshared/ocrfeeder/util/lib.py
/usr/share/pyshared/ocrfeeder/studio/dataHolder.py
/usr/share/pyshared/ocrfeeder/studio/widgetPresenter.py
