# Revision history [back]

Building opencv from source for ROS is documented on this section on its wiki page, which seems to cover not just building from source but mixed with how to make binary packages out of built artifact IINM. I haven't tried the whole steps by myself, but I'd say go through the steps in that section up to the following line:

44 echo "install(FILES package.xml DESTINATION share/opencv3)" >> ./CMakeLists.txt


May or may not be an answer but this doesn't fit into comment section so posting as an answer.
