Linux D07-CPT-8gb-4cpu-nyc1 4.4.0-92-generic #115-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 10 09:04:33 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Before trying on the server I tried this command on my Bash for Windows and working fine here. sudo apt-get install libopencv-dev python-opencv I ran the same command on Linux server but when I type import cv2 I am getting this error. Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> ImportError: No module named 'cv2' opencvis not listed when I check with pip freeze. Note: I am using python 3.5.2 January 3, 2018 at 2:05 am #36862 Anonymous Answer At least on Ubuntu 16.04, there exist Python 2 and Python 3. So when install package for python, you should be care of your python version. The default python and pip is for Python 2. Solutions: 1. specific the Python version sudo python3 -m pip install opencv-python 2. install python3-pip, and then use python3 and pip3 sudo apt install python3-pip pip3 install opencv-python Source: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48003424/installing-cv2-on-linux-serverAuthor: SilencerThis work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.
