Import error (OpenCV) inside OpenVino Environment

Hello @everyone,

when trying to run an app inside the OpenVino Environment that imports OpenCV I received following Import Error:

 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "app.py", line 2, in <module>
    import cv2
ImportError: dlopen(/opt/intel/openvino_2019.3.376/python/python3/cv2.so, 2): Symbol not found: _PyBytes_AsString
  Referenced from: /opt/intel/openvino_2019.3.376/python/python3/cv2.so
  Expected in: flat namespace
 in /opt/intel/openvino_2019.3.376/python/python3/cv2.so

 

I ran all verification scripts successfully after installing the toolkit and also was able so far to download pre-trained models from the OpenVino Model Zoo. Does anyone has an idea and or guidance on what I can do about it?

Thanks, actually just the change from

python

to

python3

did the trick. Using just "python" refers to an outdated version that comes preinstalled with macOS.

What is your platform and Python version? Add full output of the command:

python3 -c 'import cv2'
