The package I am building on Precise instructs me to install OpenCV using synaptic to get libcv-dev libcvaux-dev and libhighgui-dev. So I opened up synaptic and checked the boxes and downloaded these packages.
Now I did a make and ended up with:
usr/bin/ld cannot find -lcv usr/bin/ld cannot find -lcvaux usr/bin/ld cannot find -lhighgui
I Have tried downloading the non"-dev" OpenCV packages. No change. Downloaded OpenCV tarball, spent 45 minutes watching it cmake. make, make install. Same errors when I tried to compile my package.
I looked on an older Lucid machine where the package was built a couple of years ago. I compares the output of
with the new machine. The old machine shows libcv.so.4.0.0 etc and libcvaux.so...and libhighgui.so... The new machine shows no such things.
I'm willing to bet the new machine and new install may be later than the old ones, but they the lib files are completely missing.
Anyone know how to resolve this? Google has proven of not much use.
I am really concerned that the 12.04 install vers ion is so wildly different from the 10.04 versionb that I can't just compile my package.
My new build machine is a Dell R330 server adn all I get from goole is "don't even try a build older than 11.10. I opted for LTS so went with 12.04.
