Cannot find module cv2 when using OpenCV

0 votes

I am using  Occidentalis OS and have installed OpenCV in it. I get the following message while importing cv2 in a Python program.

pi@raspberrypi~$ python cam.py
Traceback (most recent call last)
File "cam.py", line 1, in <module>
    import cv2
ImportError: No module named cv2

The  cv2.so file is stored in -  /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/.
Can someone please tell me why this message is popping up and how to solve this?

This is because python is not able to refer to your default site packages folder.

Add these lines in the code:

import sys

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

Or you can move to /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages directory before running the python command in bash.

I hope this helps.
