As a followup to my last comment: The problem is known and intended and only happens for OpenCV3 without contrib modules, see

Ros with OpenCV3 should be built only with contrib modules, but this can't be checked on arch right now. Otherwise, refer to the ros-indigo-opencv3 package for the intended way to install OpenCV3 on top of ROS.

@Caopi: are these extra contrib files bundled on Debian/Ubuntu in their libopencv-dev package? If that's the case, this should probably be reported to the opencv maintainer on Arch. Else, this may need to be fixed upstream in cv_bridge or opencv_apps to check for the availability of these extra files.

As for opencv_apps, they seem to be testing it against OpenCV 3 on Travis (see and, so the fact that this does not work for you is suspicious.

In version 1.11.10 this package includes the file "simple_flow_nodelet.cpp", which requires optflow.hpp from the opencv-contrib package and opencv 3.1. But, since opencv-contrib only provides "opencv", the dependencies can't check if the user actually has opencv-contrib or just opencv. Without contrib this package will break the ros-indigo-desktop-full installation. The file should probably be excluded for now.
