I am trying to use imshow without opengl support in python which has been pre-compiled with the libraries I am using and unfortunately I have not control over the computer I'm on, so opengl does not work.

I have tried using this before imshow: cv2.namedWindow("image", cv2.WINDOW_NORMAL)

With no effect, it always wants opengl.

Is there any way to display images without using opengl?

you have to build your cv2 WITH_OPENGL=OFF (that's a cmake option).

it's impossible, and far too late, trying that from a python script.
