Hi I am very new to Opencv and were learning this for my computer vision class. I've installed opencv2.4 on both windows and linux and get very similar errors.

On Ubuntu 12.4 - I installed using the link below:

On windows I installed using this link below:

On both OS, I get very similar errors when compling the testing code: On linux I get - error:/home/openCV-2.4.1/build/lib/.so: No such file or directory The INCLUDEPATH & LIBS CODE I specified in linux was
INCLUDEPATH += /home/OpenCV-2.4.1/build/include LIBS += /home/OpenCV-2.4.1/build/lib/

On windows I get something very similar (can't exactly remember) error: LIBS += "C:\opencv24\opencv_bin\bin*.­dll" No such file or directory.

Hi there, I also had a lot of problems getting opencv to compile. (windows, visual studio 2013)

I solved it by going step by step through this:

and then, when it still told me i was missing certain .dll files, copying them from C:\opencv\build\include to my project dir.

Hope this helps.

Please do not resurrect ancient topics if you do not add any usefull information. The repository has evolved alot since july 2012 and the rules are totally not the same anymore :)
