Problem :

While trying to import the OpenCV, using import cv2 I facing the below error:

/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/cv2/__init__.py in <module>()
12 
13 # make IDE's (PyCharm) autocompletion happy
----> 14 from .cv2 import *
15 
16 # wildcard import above does not import "private" variables like __version__
ImportError: libSM.so.11: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am not sure how to fix this issue – I am trying to play around with the Google's new Colaboratory tool.

Please let me know if someone have solution for the above issue.

Solution :

I was also not able to install the cv2 on Anaconda-Jupyter notebook which was running on Ubuntu on Google Cloud Platform. But I found the way to do it as below :

Please run the below command from your ssh terminal and follow the instructions:

 sudo apt-get install libsm6 libxrender1 libfontconfig1

Once its installed please Open the Jupyter notebook and try to run the below command:

!pip install opencv-contrib-python

Please Note: I had tried to run below command:

"sudo python3 -m pip install opencv-contrib-python"

But it was showing me an error. But above command really worked for me.

Now just refresh your notebook page and check whether it is installed or not by running the import cv2 in your notebook.
