I heard that OpenCV supports only 32 bit Python.

But my OS is Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit and it has Python 2.7 64 bit.

How can I install latest OpenCV-Python bindings on this system for 32 bit Python?



You heard wrong.

Installing python-opencv on 12.04 64-bit works just fine. See apt-get log for details.

  • but how to get opencv 2.4.2 ? it is still opencv 2.3 in ubuntu repo. – Abid Rahman K Jul 6 '12 at 8:43
  • also, in cv2.line() function, it says, lineType is not a valid argument. But it works fine in 32 bit Python. – Abid Rahman K Jul 6 '12 at 8:54
