Cheers @Nocifer !

Hey @Kr1ss, I'm the maintainer of zmeventnotification, one of those AUR packages listing python-opencv-python as a dependency. I saw your message and I have to say, I too only thought I needed your package in order to fulfill the opencv-python dependency of my package, without having realized that the standard opencv package already includes the python bindings. As such, I have updated my package to not depend on this one, so you can cross me off your list.

Thanks for the heads-up!

Cool thank you for checking ! As for your package, I'm glad you could sort this out.

Gonna contact the other maintainers some time at the upcoming weekend.

Psychopy seems to work fine with the opencv package. I have updated the PKGBUILD. There are still 6 AUR packages that depend on this package, so I would not delete it yet. I would suggest orphaning it or even better, leaving a comment on the other packages to see if the dependence is real.

@Kr1ss: Great, glad to help!

@daniel_shub: I suspect those files in /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/cv2 could well be just the binaries that come with the regular opencv package and that they're just in there because they come bundled with the opencv-python wheel (I'm assuming that installing python wheels shouldn't involve dumping files elsewhere in your system). You definitely get the cv2 python package with opencv though -- I use it all the time.

The opencv-python Github page seems to suggest that they're just bundling the binaries into a wheel rather than e.g. patching OpenCV or anything.

Turns out dupliseek-git is fine w/ the community opencv package - I just pushed an updated PKGBUILD. All I had to do is change the requirement from opencv-python to opencv in So thx again @billypilgrim for stepping by :)

@daniel_shub When you've checked your package, please let me know if it actually needs this. If yes, and if you're interested, I'd hand this package over to you.

In case you don't need it either, I'll file a deletion request. But take the time you need.

Kr1ss commented on 2020-07-21 14:01

K in this case I won't take any action regarding this package @daniel_shub, even if I'll later find out that dupliseek-git doesn't actually need it.

Thank you for notifying us.

I do not know much about Python or OpenCV, but I do maintain the PsychoPy package which currently depends on the python-opencv-python and not the opencv package. It looks like the two packages provide different files and in particular the python-opencv-python package provides a lot of files in usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/cv2/ that are absent in the opencv package. I cannot remember if this is a critical difference for PsychoPy, but will check this weekend when I get a chance.

Yeah I think the idea of this python wheel is just that you get all the opencv binaries bundled into a wheel so you don't have to install them separately if e.g. you're on Windows. Anyway I hope this is helpful :-)

Kr1ss commented on 2020-07-21 08:36

I'm also maintaining dupliseek-git, which depends on opencv-python, that was the main reason I created this package. I wasn't aware though that community/opencv installs Python bindings; I'll have to investigate if my other package can depend on that then. Will do so tonight when I'm back at my box.

In any case, thx for pointing this out @billypilgrim !
