I can't seem to access "muiltiverse" in the software center. I have it checked in the settings, but when I search for libhighgui, which is in multiverse, it doesn't show up. Is anyone else having this problem?

Seems to show up for me in USC, can you add the contents of your /etc/apt/sources.list to your question or a screenshot of your software settings? – Jorge Castro Oct 14 '11 at 17:22

Follow this tutorial:

After that, run in a Terminal window:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install libhighgui

Then it should install it.

Still doesn't work I'm afraid. I'm not new to ubuntu, so I've used different repositories in the past, it's just not working lately. I tried it on my laptop and my desktop (both 64bit). – Lexen Oct 29 '11 at 2:53
OK, I edited my answer. – MiJyn Oct 30 '11 at 21:47
