I needed to do:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

After updating opencv.

(I posted this same thing on the site, just in case):

Hello, I'm trying to install waifu2x-converter-cpp in my Manjaro system and I get this error:

Scanning dependencies of target gensrcs
[ 11%] Generating
[ 14%] Generating modelHandler_CUDA.ptx30
/usr/include/bits/floatn.h(74): error: invalid argument to attribute "__mode__"

I don't know if it's somehow related with my version of CUDA intalled, I have 7.5 and I can't upgrade, 'cause my old nvidia card doesn't support newer versions.

Thank you in advance!

This gives a different output compared to waifu2x. The author of waifu2x said somewhere on its issue tracker that the waifu2x-converter-cpp uses outdated algorithms or something, which could explain why it's not as good as the original waifu2x.

Be wary of these waifu2x-converter packages, they are not as good as proper waifu2x!
