Hi there, I am facing the same problem. But i am little confused with the instructions.

$ cd <opencv_build_directory>

$ cmake -DOPENCV_EXTRA_MODULES_PATH=<opencv_contrib>/modules <opencv_source_directory>

$ make -j5

which is build directory, opencv contrib and opencv source directoy. As far as i am able to get it

build_directory:- is directory in which i made the build folder while installing opencV. in my case it will be "Downloads/opencv-3.0.0-rc1/build"

opencv_contrib :- is the folder which i downloaded from git. in my case "Downloads/opencv_contrib-master"

source_directory :- i am not getting any clue here,my guess is its in "usr/local/include/opencv2" ??

I have tried options but nothing seem to solve my problem.

Please help me out here. Thank you

cd /Downloads/opencv-3.0.0-rc1 # your src dir
mkdir build                      # your build dir
cd build                                  
cmake  -DOPENCV_EXTRA_MODULES_PATH=/Downloads/opencv_contrib-master/modules .. # last 2 dots point to src dir

I installed the modules successfully. But still i am getting the same error.. ie:It have not solved the problem i was originally facing,which is error: ‘FaceRecognizer’ was not declared in this scope cv::Ptr<facerecognizer> model, mouthModel;

To which i was suggested to install the extra modules. But that doesnt seem to help either.

  • "I installed the modules successfully" - good ;)
  • "‘FaceRecognizer’ was not declared in this scope" - did you forget a namespace ? Ptr<face::FaceRecognizer> reco = face::createLBPHFaceRecognizer();

I actually tried that, but i get the following error.

error: ‘face’ cannot appear in a constant-expression cv::Ptr<face::facerecognizer> model, mouthModel;

rather start a new question for that, and show the relevant code ?

cmake -DOPENCV_EXTRA_MODULES_PATH=<opencv_contrib>/modules <opencv_source_directory> <opencv_contrib>: is the folder which u downloaded from git. in my case "Downloads/opencv_contrib-master" <source_directory> : is the folder which u downloaded from git. in my case "Downloads/opencv"( it's your opencv dowload source)
