those face recognizer interfaces had a lot of modifications over time. you'd have to look at the 3.0.0 docs and see, it's :


but most likely, you missed, that you need to build your opencv with the contrib libs for this. see the readme there for build instructions.

you would also need to update your main opencv repo to latest 3.4 or master, since both repos need exactly the same version.

thanks for your response...i ll try compiling with contrib lib
