I’ve been learning CUDA and OpenCV at the same time to learn GPUCV later on.
However I’ve faced a problem that I can’t solve and can’t find it’s answer on other forums. I’ve previously posted here and know that most linux users here have a lot of knowledge and would respond me with a great answer.
So here’s the problem.
I’ve complied some OpenCV sample code and I want it to run on my webcam, but the terminal doesn’t show any pop up windows from the highgui.
Basically I type this:
and the terminal doesn’t show me an error message, it just stays there processing , while my Logitech webcam green light goes on, but then no window comes out, and I can’t really tell whats happening.
On the other hand, when I type in this:
It opens up normally and I can use the facetracking code on a saved .avi file. But I wan’t to use it real-time with my webcam.
Strange thing is that Cheese and amsn detect my webcam, but Camorama doesn’t.
Curiously when I type in
I get this error:
bash: /dev/video0: Permission denied
: lsusb does detect my LogitechE1000 webcam.
Is there anything I’m missing?? Suggestions?
Sorry if this isn’t exactly an OpenCV forum, but I really need help from guys what know about linux.
