Always good practice to update everything before you install stuff: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo rpi-update We need to install some packages that allow OpenCV to process images: sudo apt-get install libtiff5-dev libjasper-dev libpng12-dev If you get an error about libjpeg-dev try installing this first:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg-dev

We need to install some packages that allow OpenCV to process videos: sudo apt-get install libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libswscale-dev libv4l-dev

We need to install the GTK library for some GUI stuff like viewing images. sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev

We need to install some other packages for various operations in OpenCV: sudo apt-get install libatlas-base-dev gfortran

We need to install pip if you haven't done so in the past: wget sudo python

Now we can install NumPy - a python library for maths stuff - needed for maths stuff. sudo pip install numpy

Download and install the file from this repo called "latest-OpenCV.deb". wget "" sudo dpkg -i latest-OpenCV.deb

Test it installed correctly by doing the following: Open a python shell python Run the following commands, it should return the same version you installed.

import cv2 cv2.version
