I am currently trying to get XIMEA working with OpenCV 2.3 / 2.4 or ROS under linux, I know prosilica works and the wiki has examples. I have the vaViewer (comes with XIMEA) working under linux, but trying to write an example to just acquire an image with OpenCV. I know there is support built into OpenCV 2.3 for XIMEA and is built with the flag ./configure -DWITH_XIMEA=ON. I'm just wondering if anyone has successfully gotten this to run under linux and if they could please provide me with some example code to just grab an image.

This is now working. XIMEA was kind enough to help me solve the situation very quickly as well as getting a patch submitted to OpenCV (which is merged into the latest SVN and should ship with OpenCV 2.4.2).

They were also nice enough to update their wiki on how to get things working under linux:

Dear Sir or Madam,

We have noticed that you have some issues in regards to our camera. Our team is already taking a look at the possible solution. We will let you know about the progress as soon as there is some development.

However - why didnt you contact our support directly via webpage?

Thank you in advance for your patience.

Part of the reason was so the code / answer is available online and searchable (as I imagine you have found this question via search). I will contact your technical support channel.
