Ubuntu 16.04, libxine-dev is not found, fails the rest. Maybe it should be on a separate line?

for people who are facing this error :
nvcc fatal : Unsupported gpu architecture 'compute_11'
try to compile with this cmake command under the release folder :
cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -D CUDA_GENERATION=Kepler ..

If there is error with graphcuts.cpp, try this:
Open the file "/opencv-2.4.11/modules/gpu/src/graphcuts.cpp" and replace
#if !defined (HAVE_CUDA) || defined (CUDA_DISABLER)
by
#if !defined (HAVE_CUDA) || defined (CUDA_DISABLER) || (CUDART_VERSION >= 8000)

@TrinhTUHH thanks. It seems this problem was solved in the latest version (2.4.13.4)

Ubuntu 16.04 requires unzip to be installed as well. Thanks for the script.

All the dependencies in the shell looks fine, however to install opencv-2.4.11 there is an easier way to do it by running: sudo apt-get install python-opencv in your command line. Note that the SIFT/SURF API has changed due to patent issues and can be called like this:

import cv2
cv2.xfeatures2d.SIFT_create()

Notice that the second line used to be called using cv2.SIFT. Details can be found here

Same problem here, but Ubuntu 18.04.1

$ sudo apt-get -qq install libopencv-dev build-essential checkinstall cmake pkg-config yasm libjpeg-dev libjasper-dev libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libswscale-dev libdc1394-22-dev libxine-dev libgstreamer0.10-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev libv4l-dev python-dev python-numpy libtbb-dev libqt4-dev libgtk2.0-dev libmp3lame-dev libopencore-amrnb-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev libtheora-dev libvorbis-dev libxvidcore-dev x264 v4l-utils ```

throws me:


E: Unable to locate package libxine-dev

I've tried different ways to install libxine-dev effortless. Any idea how to solve it?

If any of you use Ubuntu 16.04 with cuda 10.0 ,then please install 2.4.13.2 instead of this version, cause due to cuda mismatch the build won't work.

And cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RELEASE -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -D CUDA_GENERATION=Kepler .. @HamdiHamed1992
if this error occurs:
'nvcc fatal : Unsupported gpu architecture 'compute_20'

Which version of Ubuntu have you used for installing it? I am installing it on Ubuntu 16.04.7 on a VirtualBox (Win 10), but get errors.

Thanks. It worked on python 2.7.12. (which is my default one). How to make it work on python 3.5?

Hello, I also want to make it work on Python 3.5/3.5+ -- any luck getting it worked on Python 3.5+?

Everything goes fine until I run the following command.

"sudo apt-get -qq install libopencv-dev build-essential checkinstall
cmake pkg-config yasm libjpeg-dev libjasper-dev libavcodec-dev
libavformat-dev libswscale-dev libdc1394-22-dev libxine-dev
libgstreamer0.10-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev libv4l-dev
python-dev python-numpy libtbb-dev libqt4-dev libgtk2.0-dev
libmp3lame-dev libopencore-amrnb-dev libopencore-amrwb-dev libtheora-dev
libvorbis-dev libxvidcore-dev x264 v4l-utils"

When I run the above command, it gives me the following error:

"E: Package 'libxine-dev' has no installation candidate"

I have python 3.8.9 installed on Ubuntu 16.04.7
