I want to use the OpenCV's FaceRecognizer module for Python in Ubuntu 14.04 but it keeps me saying:

attributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'createEigenFaceRecognizer'

Why is that and how can I solve it??

Thank you in advance

I have visited another question asked in this forum:

but the answer didn't work for me and since it is quite old I thought some thing may have changed.

>>> help(cv2.face)
Help on module cv2.face in cv2:



        createEigenFaceRecognizer([, num_components[, threshold]]) -> retval

        createFisherFaceRecognizer([, num_components[, threshold]]) -> retval

        createLBPHFaceRecognizer([, radius[, neighbors[, grid_x[, grid_y[, thres
hold]]]]]) -> retval

@berak Can you please give me a quick walkthrough on how to add this? I'm new and confused as to what and would be for the make instructions outlined in the readme ( I'm previously compiled opencv v3.2.0 but can't figure out how to compile this, either through command line prompts or through the cmake gui. Thanks!
