opencv - error

Hi, I was using `opencv` as usual on devcloud but today I got this error:

 (my_env) uxxxxxx@s001-n121:~$ python
 Python 3.6.3 |Intel Corporation| (default, Feb 12 2018, 06:37:09)

 Please check out:
 >>> import cv2
 Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
 ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I started a new env to see if my current env is the problem and followed the steps from this question:

and got the same result.


`pip install opencv-python`

`conda install -c anaconda opencv`

Thanks for reaching out to us.

Kindly follow the below instructions.

Step 1: Open the terminal and activate your environment

source activate my_env

Step 2:  Check the python path by giving the following command

which python

Step 3: If it references /glob python path, update the PATH by exporting the conda python path.


export PATH="/home/u*****/.conda/envs/my_env/bin":$PATH

Step 4: Now, check 

which python

It should show the updated python PATH. Now, you can import the opencv package as you did.

Note: Change uxxxx to your user id

Hope it helps.

Worked perfectly! Thanks!
