I am using ROS Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04. I installed the OpenCV 3 for ROS with apt-get:

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-opencv3

However, I would like to use modules from the opencv_contrib repository ( ). Is there an easy way to install and use these within ROS?

Initially, I had a standalone OpenCV 3 installation with the contrib modules, but I had to uninstall it because of referencing issues when using ROS.

EDIT: I think the installation of OpenCV 3 is discussed in point 5 of , I actually ran this script, but I'm not sure what to do after this.

No I could not solve it. I wanted to use the Aruco marker library, but finally I ended up to use the ar_pose ROS package.
