For Windows users there is binary a version in section. From version 1.09 distribution is split to 2 part:

  • qt-box-editor executable (e.g. qt-box-editor-1.11.exe) - share build
  • qt-box-editor dependecies (e.g. - needed 3rd party libraries to run qt-box editor. There is a hope that qt-box-editor dependecies can be used for next few qt-box-editor releases.

On other platforms you need to build qt-box-editor from source. You will need QT4 (v1.11 is compatible with QT5), leptonica and tesseract.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
