Install OpenCV 2.3.1 and SimpleCV in Ubuntu, Arch Linux


After screwing up my Ubuntu see previous post and also my Arch Linux, I installed Ubuntu 11.10 and upgraded to 12.04.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - Precise Pangolin

Install OpenCV 2.3.1

sudo apt-get install libopencv-*
sudo apt-get isntall python-opencv
sudo apt-get install python-numpy

That’s it! OpenCV 2.3.1 is installed completely in Ubuntu 12.04 (Thanks for the package).

Install SimpleCV.

sudo apt-get install python-pygame python-scipy
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
sudo apt-get install ipython ipython-netbook # Not a necessity

Download the latest SimpleCV version from GitHub. Extract it and change the directroy.

sudo python setup.py install

Arch Linux

Install OpenCV 2.3.1

pacman -S python2-numpy
pacman -S opencv 2.3.1_a-4

Install SimpleCV.

pacman -S python-pygame python2-scipy
pacman -S python2-setuptools
pacman -S ipython2 # Not a necessity

P.S. GNOME shell 3.4 is quite neat.
