Tesseract OCR is getting failed in Mac with UnsatisfiedLinkError

I am trying to automate a Numeric Captcha using Tesseract OCR in Mac OS (Monterey). But I am facing below error.

java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Unable to load library 'tesseract': Native library (darwin/libtesseract.dylib) not found in resource path ([file:/Users/xyz/Katalon%20Studio/TestProject/bin/keyword/, file:/Users/xyz/Katalon%20Studio/TestProject/Keywords/, file:/Users/xyz/Katalon%20Studio/TestProject/bin/listener/,....])

Java Code

Tesseract instance = new Tesseract();
 instance.setDatapath(RunConfiguration.getProjectDir() + "/tessdata");
String imagePath = RunConfiguration.getProjectDir() + "/Captcha.png
 String captcha = instance.doOCR(new File(imagePath));

The same code is working fine on my Mac in Intellij and in windows OS. Issue occurs only in Katalon studio in Mac. Can anyone please help me to solve this.

Hi @hemalatha.mani

Thanks for using the Katalon Studio. Hope you are doing great.

Could you please send me you application in Test so that I can give it a try.

You will have to add “Testeract” into Katalon Library management first before using

I found a thread titled " Unable to load library ‘tesseract’: Native library (darwin/libtesseract.dylib)"


Have you installed Tesseract on Mac?

Hi @mohit.kumar ,

Thanks for your response.

Yeah, I have added all the required JAR files of Tesseract in Katalon Library management. But still facing the same error.

I have added the Test project for your reference. Tesseract Jar files are added separately. Kindly import these Jar files into Katalon.

DemoProject.zip (22.4 MB)

Hi @kazurayam ,

Yes, I have installed Tesseract on my Mac.

I have referred java - Tess4j unsatisfied link error on mac OS X - Stack Overflow and I have added the darwin/libtesseract.dylib file into the Maven repo. After adding this, Tesseract OCR is working fine in Intellij. But still I am facing the UnsatisfiedLinkError error in Katalon.

I do not understand what you mean “into the Maven repo”. Do you mean “into under the $HOME/.m2 folder”?

I guess you project in IntelliJ is configured to refer to the Maven local repository, so your code works.

However, Katalon Studio does not understand Maven at all.
Katalon assumes that every external resourses to be located under the Drivers folder manually by you.
Perhaps it is the reason why your code does not work in Katalon Studio.

Thanks for your information @kazurayam . I meant the Maven local repository.

I added the libtesseract.dylib file under the Katalon project Drivers folder manually. Now I am facing java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Unable to load library 'tesseract': Can't obtain InputStream for darwin/libtesseract.dylib error .

You should raise an official support request to the Katalon developer team.
