While installing ros-electric-desktop-full, I ran into a conflict of ros-electric-vision-opencv (through libopencv2.3-dev) with the default OpenCV in Ubuntu 11.10. In order to resolve the conflict, I manually installed libopencv2.3-dev, which removed Ubuntu's default OpenCV installation (libcv-dev, libcvaux-dev and libhighgui-dev). However, I found out that the FindOpenCV.cmake file that can be downloaded from the OpenCV website does not work with libopencv2.3-dev. It used to work with default Ubuntu OpenCV installation though. That FindOpenCV.cmake file looks for OpenCV libraries with very different names than those installed by libopencv2.3-dev. Is there a FindOpenCV.cmake file that works with 2.3.1 and may also be compatible with default Ubuntu installation (libcv, libcvaux, libhighgui)? This is definitely a show stopper.

The conflict with the default Ubuntu cv libraries looks related to this question: (with still no solution).
