I'm running a newly installed copy of 2.4.2, python 2.7 in Ubuntu 12.04 on a 64 bit HP G62. Trying to run the file and getting:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 106, in <module> model = cv2.createEigenFaceRecognizer() AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'createEigenFaceRecognizer'

Any ideas? regards, Richard

If you think this question is a duplicate, you should close it (use the close link below question), and select reason as "Duplicate". It is not worth polluting the site with dozens questions on common themes

Right, I read that before I posted. As I noted in my question, I did this on a fresh install of 2.4.2. Am I missing something here? Sammy, I didn't think it was a duplicate because this is a fresh install. If you want me to close this and tag on to the above post, I will.

regards, Richard

I saw that Phillip redirected you to that question. I do not know whether your question is different enough to be removed. You guys should evaluate that and take the correct action. If it is interesting by its own, it should stay.

Okay, thanks. I'll wait to see what Phillip says.

It is a duplicate. That's what I was saying.

So I need to recompile a fresh install of 2.4.2 is what you're saying. That's what I don't understand. What would that accomplish? What would happen this time that didn't last night?

Philipp says there is a bug in the 2.4.2 release that was fixed in the trunk. And you have to clone the latest sources from git, and compile everything from scratch.

okay, now I understand. I'll give it a try.
