OpenTLD – Georg Nebehay’s version of OpenTLD in OpenCV 2.3.1 and Towel Day

Happy Towel Day, froods. DON’T PANIC!

Coding period has already started and I’m a bit behind my schedule. Here’s a basic task list that I’ll follow.

Task list:
  • Get this up and running on your machine
  • Learn how it works, what variables can be tweaked and decide if any of SimpleCV’s functionality could be used to improve it
  • Port it directly to SimpleCV

So, I got Georg Nebehay’s OpenTLD version up and running on my machine with Ubuntu 12.04 and OpenCV 2.3.1. I tried installing it via Ubuntu Software Center, but it showed me there were some conflicts and few libraries missing. I removed all the conflicts and installed libhigui2.3, but it still asked me to install libhighui>=2.0.
I tried installing it manually. First of all, I had to install cmake.
sudo apt-get install cmake

cd ~/Downloads/gnebehay-OpenTLD-b1c1e88 # to the directory

Since this OpenTLD version is made for OpenCV2.0, it gave me error because all the headers included were of OpenCV2.0 and I have OpenCV2.3.1. So, I manually changed all the header files to OpenCV2.3.1 header files. After successfully building from the source, I tried it. It’s working well.

P.S. Always keep your towel with you. Digital watches are appreciated. Thanks for everything, Douglas Adams.

  1. Hi,

    I am also trying to install OpenTLD on Ubunut 12.04, but as I am not IT specialist
    I also face problems when I try to compile (related to highgui). Is there any possibility that you can provide a working binary for Ubuntu 12.04?
