Hi, I’m trying to install an app called frog, not the large language model app, but the screenshot app that copies the text on the screenshot to your text editor. OCR like I guess.
It’s useful for copying things from a video still frame, ie. text in foreign languages,programming code and so forth.
I have tried installing via the appcenter and flathub but I keep getting errors
Try again. Maybe there are network or server issues.
I have just installed it with Gnome Software .
ok thanks, will try to re-install it.
ok got it installed now, you were right, probably just a network error earlier
It is also in AUR as frog-ocr.
yep, I saw it there too xircon. I actually tried installing the aur version before the flatpak version using yay.
It installed but didn’t launch for me. I saw there was a note during the install saying
“you must have the XDG_DATA_HOME variable set otherwise the program won’t run”
so I created a .profile file in the /home directory and added: export XDG_DATA_HOME=“$HOME/.config”
But the program still didn’t launch for me.
I had the same issue. Install flatpak with sudo resolved it.
The standard relevant value for this variable is:
It doesn’t mean this is the reason of program failure. Nevertheless, flatpak frog is working for me.
