No package ‘opencv’ found

If you are getting this error while compiling certain modules which requires opencv library which is causing the execution to be aborted.

For fixing it, you need to install lib-opencv using following command:

Ubunntu/Debian – sudo apt-get install libopencv-dev

Centos/Red Hat – sudo yum install opencv-devel

After you do so, pkg-config –cflags opencv and pkg-config –libs opencv will work as expected.
