Make sure you get OpenCV 2.0 (not earlier versions)



Ubuntu/Debian Package

Ubuntu Karmic includes only opencv 1.x. You probably want to use opencv 2.0. There is a package for this in the Humanoids Lab APT repository. If you're on fairly recent i386 hardware, it should work.

Manual Compilation

  • Install prerequisites. On ubuntu, this is apt-get install build-essential python-dev libgtk2.0-dev libopenexr-dev libpng12-dev libtiff4-dev libjasper-dev octave
  • Download
  • ./configure && make && make install
