tesseract package in R studio cloud


IN this old post- install tesseraact in Rstudio cloud , it mentioned that the tesseract package will be included in r studio cloud. Iam still not able to use it.
------------------------- ANTICONF ERROR ---------------------------
Configuration failed because tesseract was not found. Try installing:

  • deb: libtesseract-dev libleptonica-dev (Debian, Ubuntu, etc)
  • rpm: tesseract-devel leptonica-devel (Fedora, CentOS, RHEL)
  • csw: libtesseract_dev (Solaris)
  • brew: tesseract (Mac OSX)
    If tesseract is already installed, check that 'pkg-config' is in your
    PATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH contains a tesseract.pc file. If pkg-config
    is unavailable you can set INCLUDE_DIR and LIB_DIR manually via:
    R CMD INSTALL --configure-vars='INCLUDE_DIR=... LIB_DIR=...'

Can anybody help ?

Thanks in advance

Yesterday RStudio Cloud was updated so new projects will use Ubuntu 20.04. This update fixes the issues with installing the 'tesseract' package. If you create a new project and try again, you should have better luck. (Note: existing projects will still use Ubuntu 16.04 so you will need to create a new project to see this.)
