Available opencv version for tumbleweed on the website https://software.opensuse.org/package/opencv is listed 3.2, but when I try installing it on my laptop version 3.1 is installed. Can you please help?


I looked at my package list and found that the latest version of opencv is in the Education repository:

zypper info opencv

Version : 3.2.0-95.4
Arch : x86_64
Vendor : openSUSE-Education
Installed Size : 10.1 MiB
Installed : No
Status : not installed
Source package : opencv-3.2.0-95.4.src
Summary : Collection of algorithms for computer vision

So, you should add Education repository for installing the latest version of opencv:

zypper ar -f -n education http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Education/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/ education

    Thanks! They have a really bad website then, I will probably switch to ArchLinux – hovo Jun 13 '17 at 10:04

    @hovo download.opensuse.org/repositories You can find a lots of repositories here. You are right, there are lots of strange things in the website and wiki of openSUSE. But I don't believe openSUSE is bad distro. – Antranig Avakian Jun 13 '17 at 10:38
