You can try tesseract or another ocr engine without having sane working if 
you have an image file that you know has text in like a .tif file or so.
Sane is needed to get the stuff from the paper in the scanner into an 
image file.
Note: the current latest svn version of ocropus does not run, try a 
version from about two weeks ago.
