View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem including OpenCV library installed with synaptic

December 21st, 2011, 09:06 AM
Hello everyone,

I wanted to use a library ( Open Computer Vision library) in my C++ programs so I downloaded it from Synaptic. But when I put the "include" directive for the library g++ says it cannot find it. This is the directive that I have been using. I got this from an example somewhere on the web.

#include <cv.h> // Main OpenCV library.
#include <highgui.h> // OpenCV functions for files and graphical windows.I am using the same general command for compiling the program.

g++ -Wall prog.cpp -o progAre any other flags required?

Or can someone tell me how to add a library to gcc so that I can try to do it manually?
