Hello, I am new in OpenCV. A few days ago I installed openCV using the following link:

I can compile and run some examples. But I don;t have any opencv2 directory in my installation under which there should ne a core.hpp file. Please let me know which version I should use if I want to build opencv from source.

Thanks in advance.

The current version is 2.4.5. You should be able to download and install it from However, I'll think that if you already have opencv installed, you can play with it first to learn about it. The directory opencv2 should be found in include directory.

I am looking for the source version, in the download section I can only find the executable. In my installation I have opencv directory under include , no opencv2 directory.

Are you using Windows? I believe the executable will help you download the rest of the source.

No it does not, however if you install it correctly the directory does contain the data. It is under build/include/opencv2!
