Obsidian OCR on Fedora 36 doesn't find tesseract (installed)

Things I have tried

  • Installed tesseract-5.0.1-5.fc36.x86_64.rpm with
    sudo rpm -i tesseract-5.0.1-5.fc36.x86_64.rpm
  • Tried the tesseract enging with gImageReader and installed all language packs and training tools. It works with gImageReader on a handwritten scanned pdf file.
  • added “/usr/bin:/usr/share:/usr/share/tesseract” to additional paths
  • Restarted my system (just in case).

When I switch in the plugin settings from NoOp to Tesseract I got the message: “Tesseract wasn’t found”.
