I'm using version 2.4.8 that it is installed as part of the ROS Jade distribution.

I am trying to follow the image segmentation demo, and get the following error. dist_transform = cv2.distanceTransform(opening, cv2.DIST_L2, 5) AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'DIST_L2'

I used

for key in cv2.__dict__.keys():
    print key

and DIST_L2 was not there. I tried substituting NORM_L2 but that failed to give an output.

for older cv2 versions, like opencv2.4.8, you will probably have to fall back to

(,, so, a different enum value)

also, just saying, those ROS folks seem to have a knack for packing outdated opencv distributions, which very often leads to trouble..

it is not like they just want to do it so to annoy people. In order to get ROS to be installable using sudo apt-get, all the dependencies should also exist as repositories. For Ubuntu 14.04, opencv 3 is not there yet. So this is a Canonical and OpenCV folks problem.
