I've done it via npm a few times before and have run into a few issues.
After searching and trying a lot for this, i was finally able to use opencv in GNU compiler(g or gcc).
Synaptic Package Manager has simplified the life to a great extent.

Now lets simplify the above big command by making a shortcut for it: go to your local home directory(cd /home/) and open the .bashrc file using gedit(the file will be hidden).So i have not mentioned here what to do about ‘ffmpeg’. This installation needs a C compiler like “g ”(which is most commonly used).So install g first using Synaptic or by following command at the terminal– If both g & GTK 2.0 are there then proceed as follows: I am using Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) and i did the following steps to install & configure Open CV(ver 22.214.171.124) successfully: 1.It only takes a minute and does not require you to restart anything or clean out caches, etc.
