HI! I'm trying to install opencv and use it with python, but when I compile it I get no errors but I can't import cv module from python:
patrick:release patrick$ python Python 2.6.1 (r261:67515, Feb 11 2010, 00:51:29) [GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646)] on darwin Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import cv Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> ImportError: No module named cv
The code I used to compile it is this:
cd opencv mkdir release cd release cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -D BUILD_PYTHON_SUPPORT=ON make sudo make install
how can I get it working with python?
I found here a way to install opencv for python: http://recursive-design.com/blog/2010/12/14/face-detection-with-osx-and-python/ :)
brew tap homebrew/science brew install opencv export PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages:$PYTHONPATH
