Hi, I want to ask how to install latest version of opencv on Rpi. I have searched for it, but they all have shown to be installing opencv 2.3 . And also if you can tell what are the packages just required to run the opencv code. I dont want to install all the development environment on Rpi. I can develop code elsewhere and just run on Rpi. Please reply, Thanks

May I suggest you try the guide here: install opencv on pi I will try it myself now. You will need to compile the source and that may take about ten hours. Luckily you don't have to be awake during the compile so its a perfect bedtime project ;-)

As an additional option you can have a look at my RPI-CV-Goodies repo. In the releases it includes the OpenCV2.4.8 sources already compiled so all you need to do is download(~357MB), untar then

cd build
sudo make install

Also I have a couple of other handy useful Raspberry PI OpenCV tools. PiCapture is a cv::Mat wrapper for the Pi Camera module and it includes camera settings too.
