OpenCV error : Assertion Failed

I was testing my opencv installation by running the first code in https://docs.opencv.org/3.3.1/dd/d43/tu … splay.html

mpf.py

 import numpy as np
import cv2
cap = cv2.VideoCapture(0)
while(True):
    # Capture frame-by-frame
    ret, frame = cap.read()
    # Our operations on the frame come here
    gray = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)
    # Display the resulting frame
    cv2.imshow('frame',gray)
    if cv2.waitKey(1) & 0xFF == ord('q'):
        break
# When everything done, release the capture
cap.release()
cv2.destroyAllWindows() 

On running

 python mfp.py 

I get this error

 OpenCV Error: Assertion failed (scn == 3 || scn == 4) in cvtColor, file /io/opencv/modules/imgproc/src/color.cpp, line 10638
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "mfp.py", line 8, in <module>
    gray = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)
cv2.error: /io/opencv/modules/imgproc/src/color.cpp:10638: error: (-215) scn == 3 || scn == 4 in function cvtColor

OpenCV Version = 3.3.1

I am a complete newbie to openCV and python .

Note to Moderators : It is my first thread in arch forum . If i posted in the wrong section please move this to the right section.

Re: OpenCV error : Assertion Failed

This section is fine.    I installed opencv, opened a python shell and entered lines 2,3,6,and 8 from your script and it worked fine here.  Well, no assertion anyway.

I note that there were many optional dependencies for opencv.  I already had them all installed with the exception of vcdimager, which I did not install.
Please verify how you installed opencv.  Also, what optional dependencies you have.

I know nothing of opencv (but it looks interesting).  I don't imagine it care what GPU you have, but mine is Intel.  As to video sources, I have a USB webcam built into my HP Envy Laptop.  What are your video sources?

Thank you for the warm welcome
As for installing python , i reinstalled it with all the optional dependencies .

$ glxinfo|egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer"
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Mobile 

When runnning the code from shell , as i reach line 8 i get this error:

>>  gray = cv2.cvtColor(frame, cv2.COLOR_BGR2GRAY)
 OpenCV Error: Assertion failed (scn == 3 || scn == 4) in cvtColor, file /io/opencv/modules/imgproc/src/color.cpp, line 10638
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
cv2.error: /io/opencv/modules/imgproc/src/color.cpp:10638: error: (-215) scn == 3 || scn == 4 in function cvtColor

Am i doing anything wrong?

Re: OpenCV error : Assertion Failed

When I had been helping you before I was ssh'ing into my box from work, thus I could not actually run your program.
I am at home today and was able to try your program.   When I run it, I get a grey-scale picture of an ugly Arch Linux Moderator.  tongue

ewaller@turing ~ 1001 %glxinfo|egrep "OpenGL vendor|OpenGL renderer"
OpenGL vendor string: Intel Open Source Technology Center
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Mobile 
ewaller@turing ~ 1002 %

Curious.   What are the output of :
pacman -Q opencv
uname -a
pacman -Q linux

Are you running this from a console, Xorg or Wayland?  I am running inside Xorg under i3wm

Re: OpenCV error : Assertion Failed

Problem solved after I installed everything clean from source . Does this mean arch repositories are hosting out dated packages?

Re: OpenCV error : Assertion Failed

Don't think so.  One thing we had not explored; was your system fully up to date (pacman -Syu) ?
