Cannot find module cv2 when using OpenCV


First do run these commands inside Terminal/CMD:

conda update anaconda-navigator  conda update navigator-updater  

Then the issue for the instruction below will be resolved

For windows if you have anaconda installed, you can simply do

pip install opencv-python

or

conda install -c https://conda.binstar.org/menpo opencv

if you are on linux you can do :

pip install opencv-python

or

conda install opencv 

Link1 Link2

For python3.5+ check these links : Link3 , Link4

Update:
if you use anaconda, you may simply use this as well (and hence don't need to add menpo channel):

conda install -c conda-forge opencv


This happens when python cannot refer to your default site-packages folder where you have kept the required python files or libraries

Add these lines in the code:

import syssys.path.append('/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages')

or before running the python command in bash move to /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages directory. This is a work around if you don't want to add any thing to the code.


I solved my issue using the following command :

conda install opencv
