Good morning, I'm doing the following tutorial step-by-step on Ubuntu 16.04

At step 3 of V2: Using CMake+OpenCV with Eclipse (plugin CDT) the tutorial says :

"Run: cmake-gui .. and make sure you fill in where opencv was built."

How should I configure cmake-gui exactly? For me, it's not clear what directories I have to set for configuring correctly the cmake (I've already compiled the opencv project anyway)


Using cmake-gui in:

"Where is the source code:" it has to fill with /path/to/foo ?

"Whereto build the binaries:" it has to fill with /path/to/foo/build?

Is it wrong? What am I forgetting?

Many thanks for the help

give path where opencv is intalled (if opencv is not installed you can give path where you build opencv) if your system is windows, folder must be added in path variable
