Does a python 3.5 wheel for openCV for the tx2 running jetpack 3.3 exist?

I’ve been trying to build OpenCV following these instructions but am getting errors.

I’m sure this wheel has been built successfully by others.
I think many of us would really appreciate it if we could simply point pip to a location similar to piwheels to simply grab the wheel we need.

Does such a url exist for jetson wheels?

I tried adding this one (where the nvidia tensorflow build is offered):

$ cat /etc/pip.conf

to no avail …

$ sudo -H pip3 install opencv-python
[sudo] password for nvidia:

OpenCV python interface can be installed directly via apt-get:

sudo apt-get install python-opencv

For your usecase, maybe try python3-opencv?


sudo apt-get install python3-opencv:
E: Unable to locate package python3-opencv


It looks like apt-get for python3-opencv is only available on Ubuntu18.04.
Please try to install it from pip3:

sudo apt-get install python3-pip
sudo pip3 install opencv-python


In jetpack 3.3 the version of ubuntu is 16.04, however i build OpenCV from source succeed. Thanks all the same.
