I think I'm looking for a specific kind of OCR.

I think OCR is the right term.

[codeiff (image of bunny) appears on screen:
print("Image of bunny seen.")
else:
print("image of bunny not seen.")[/code]

I used to run a program over on windows that would do this, but I can't get it to work on linux.

OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition, It's generally used to convert a scanned document into an editable text form for your word processor/ text editor. Is that your intent?
Kernel: 4.15.0-36-generic x86_64 bits: 64
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.9
Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara

Laptop T4500 Dualcore 4Gb RAM
Server AMD Phenom 9650 - GEForce 9400GT 6Gb RAM
+ three other Linux Mint machines
Out of my mind - please leave a message

No, I used to work with Sikuli and Selenium.
You take a screenshot, you crop it.
If that image is seen do X.
If it's not seen do Y.

Looking at this ...

... it's not at all apparent what it has to do with OCR software.
