Hello all, I have just installed OpenCV 2.4.3. I ran this following sample program just to test if it is working properly. It compiles successfully but give the following error at run-time

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Here is the output of the pkg-config --cflags --libs opencv

-I/usr/local/include/opencv -I/usr/local/include /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/ /usr/local/lib/

Thank you

After executing:

sudo make install

you need to run the following libs accessible.

sudo sh -c 'echo "/usr/local/lib" > /etc/' 
sudo ldconfig

Details of the steps are here

Your OpenCV shared objects are not installed in /usr/local/lib. You can either install them there or add the directory containing those to the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Thanks Now it's working. Just had to add the following line to .bashrc export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib";

Modify it as follows: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:/usr/local/lib
