Guided with the idea of language files not being separated in tesseract versions below 2.0, so that training will be not supported, I tried to install a newer version from source.
The winner was 2.01. with the ./configure, make and sudo make install it went well. I only had to install the language files manually. I downloaded the 2.00 language files, and overwrited the 0 byte files in the /user/local/share/tessdata.
Now it works fine. I only have to train it for Hungarian.
I also want to find an easier way to prepare the images...
