Installing OpenCV for Processing in Eclipse on a Mac
August 11, 2011 § 4 Comments
A tutorial on how to install the Open CV library for Processing in Eclipse on OSX.
( After going through the painful process of figuring out how to do this twice, I decided to write up the steps, for personal reference and to hopefully help anyone else out there in this unique predicament. Note: I am running OSX10.6.8 . )
(This presumes you already know how to run a normal processing sketch from eclipse.)
- Download opencv-framework-1.1.dmg and install it.
- Download the OpenCV Processing Library and unzip.
- Copy both OpenCV.jar and libOpenCV.jnilib to /System/Library/Java/Extensions/
- Now, Locate your Processing’s core.jar and also copy it to /System/Library/Java/Extensions/
- Ensure that any java project you run, runs in 32-bit mode. Do this by Right-Clicking your Project > Run Configurations > Arguments Tab > VM Arguments: “-d32” (without the quotes).
