  • For the correct operation of the library, you need to set the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the full path to Bin folder of the distribution pack.

    echo “<path to Bin folder>” | sudo tee -a /etc/ld.so.conf; sudo ldconfig
  • Before starting to use the library, you will need to activate your license. The ABBYY FineReader Engine 11 for Linux uses the Activation utility (activatefre.sh) to activate a license and view the already activated licenses. This utility must be run under root.
