I am trying to build a program on my raspberry pi running raspbian strech. I am getting missing symbols errors when building with opencv. ^
/usr/bin/ld: /tmp/ccY2H1tz.o: undefined reference to symbol '_ZN2cv12VideoCapture3setEid'
//usr/local/lib/ error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ pkg-config --modversion opencv

The commandline I am using to build my program is: g++ -I /usr/include -O3 hificode_OpenCV.cpp -o vl01.bin -lopencv_highgui -lopencv_imgproc -lopencv_imgcodecs -lopencv_core

However, when I run: pi@raspberrypi:~ $ pkg-config --cflags opencv
I get: -I/usr/local/include/opencv -I/usr/local/include

Having said the above, I am not getting any errors about missing header files. The files I am including in my code are:

include <stdio.h>

include <stdlib.h>

include <math.h>

include "opencv2/imgproc/imgproc.hpp"

include "opencv2/highgui/highgui.hpp"

include <opencv2 imgcodecs.hpp="">

How do I fix the missing symbols error during linking? Pranav

if you want to use the VideoCapture class, you have to include:

include "opencv2/videoio.hpp"

and link:


(in 2.4 all of it was in highgui, but that was changed with 3.0)
