Opencv 2.4.8 used to work out of the box with Ubuntu 14.04. I tried upgrading to 3.0 recently, but even with my python version (2.4.8) I was unsuccessful. Does anyone have a tutorial on how to do this?
Hello, have you tried to use an PPA for Ubuntu like this?
First you need add-apt-repository, you could find it on Ubuntu 14.04 in the software-properties-common package.
sudo apt- install software-properties-
Then activate the PPA for OpenCV 3
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:amarburg/opencv3 sudo apt-get update
After this setup, you can simple install OpenCV3
sudo apt-get install opencv3
