You may simply run OpenfaceOffline for linux instead :

  1. https://github.com/TadasBaltrusaitis/OpenFace/archive/master.zip
  2. unzip ~/Downloads/OpenFace-master.zip
  3. cd ~/OpenFace-master
  4. chmod +x download_models.sh install.sh
  5. ./download_models.sh
  6. ./install.sh

(you'll have to type in your password and be patient, it takes a long while you'll also have to type in "y" to accept installation of dependencies after a long while.)

  1. run it with ./build/bin/FaceLandmarkVid -f "samples/changeLighting.wmv" -f "samples/2015-10-15-15-14.avi"

works brilliant for me.

  • as the installation part take a while to finish. I have try the command number 7 but it gives me an error I am putting the error in my next 2 comment since it is a little longer error so please check it out Apr 11, 2019 at 17:12
