I am running Ubuntu 15.10 and installed the current version of Eclipse Mars from Then I installed the latest version of opencv from the git repository and tried to set up the project described in this tutorial. I followed the tutorial step by step but when I try to build it, I receive the following errors:

My libs are in /usr/local/libs and my includes in /usr/local/include/opencv and I inserted these paths in the project properties just as described in the tutorial.

What am I doing wrong? I already suceeded to run opencv in VisualStudio in Windows 10 and in XCode in Mac OS X. But with Eclipse in Ubuntu it won't work.

please do not use the outdatded c-api headers like cv.h , but the c++ ones.

#include "opencv2/opencv.hpp"

should be all you need.

Thanks for your quick answer. That solved the problem.

Note: I also needed to include opencv2/imgcodecs.hpp and add opencv_imgcodecs to Libraries (-l)
