Could somebody point me to a OCR tool on Linux which has a GUI
interface and also works well.

I have tried tesseract, and it requires so much fiddling around
that it's probably faster to type in the text I want to run ocr
on...see, for example
http://www.howtoforge.com/ocr_with_tesseract_on_ubuntu704

Oh yes, running debian 4.0 and using a Canon Lide 25 scanner.
