Just as an alternative way of building have you tried building the libraries using the Maven build process? This is under the directory <open_CV_root>/platforms/maven.

You will need to first ensure Java and Maven are installed on ubuntu but you can use the repo defaults for that. There is also a ReadMe in the directory too.

I haven't tried building the libraries using the Maven build process , but if I use this process, can I do my jobs with python ? Because I am not good at Java.

You don't need to be write any Java, Maven is a build tool. By default the OpenCV Maven build file (the POM) will build the OpenCV python bindings. You will have to install both the JDK and maven but this can be easily done using aptitude on the commandline : sudo aptitude install default-jdk and sudo aptitude install maven. Once you have those installed go to the maven directory mentioned in my answer and issue the build command to Maven: mvn clean install (no NOT execute this as sudo). I believe the python binding library is and it is under the directory build/lib. Please make sure you read the README in that directory too.

hls, you should raise your comment as a separate question on here as it's unrelated to the original posting.
