# System information OS: Ubutun 16.04 Container: Yes created with singularity 3.2.1 Pylibfreenect2 installation: Installed with pip Python version: 3.7 Virtual environment: Conda Enviroment

Problem description

When running the pylibfreenect example the cv2.imshow window doesn't show icons. I also raised an issue on the repository of the pylibfreenect package but as I am not sure if the problem has to do with a missing pylibfreenect or opencv dependency I also opened a topic here.





Troubleshooting steps

I am currently looking at whether a system icon package is missing and whether this is a bug related to opencv.

What I already tried

  1. Installing opencv from different channels:
  2. pip install opencv
  3. conda install opencv
  4. conda install opencv-python

  5. Installing GTK and VTK as explained in this topic.

that's nice, but (probably) the wrong place here.

can you raise an issue with the actual pip maintainer ?

from the readme there:

Linux and MacOS wheels ship with Qt 4.8.7 licensed under the LGPLv2.1.

and indeed, those icons (and the toolbar) are only available using qt.

@berak Thanks for your answer. I now also raised the question with the actual pip maintainer. I have the following Q versions installed in my container:

QMake version 3.1 Using Qt version 5.9.7 in /opt/conda/envs/tf-gpu/lib

I also have pyqt 5.9.2 installed.
