Adding random symlinks is unneccessary. If you update a dependency, just recompile this package. That's it.

waifu2x-converter-cpp --help
waifu2x-converter-cpp: error while loading shared libraries: libw2xc.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Howto fix?

Solved: add symlink /usr/local/lib/libw2xc.so to /usr/lib/libw2xc.so

Needs a patch to fix build with latest gcc (it uses a reserved name):

RE: 'sm_xx' is not defined for option 'gpu-architecture'

I just disabled cuda entirely and it compiled =]

by adding the cmake flag: -DENABLE_CUDA=no

Jakeukalane commented on 2020-04-14 15:50 (UTC) (edited on 2020-04-14 15:51 (UTC) by Jakeukalane)

I needed to do:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libopencv_imgcodecs.so.4.3 /usr/lib/libopencv_imgcodecs.so.4.2

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libopencv_imgproc.so.4.3 /usr/lib/libopencv_imgproc.so.4.2

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libopencv_core.so.4.3 /usr/lib/libopencv_core.so.4.2

After updating opencv.

Had to install ocl-icd to be able to build, worked fine without until a day ago or so.

(I posted this same thing on the https://github.com/nfnty/pkgbuilds site, just in case):

Hello, I'm trying to install waifu2x-converter-cpp in my Manjaro system and I get this error:

Scanning dependencies of target gensrcs
[ 11%] Generating modelHandler_OpenCL.cl.h
[ 14%] Generating modelHandler_CUDA.ptx30

make: *** [Makefile:141: all] Error 2

Error making: waifu2x-converter-cpp

I don't know if it's somehow related with my version of CUDA intalled, I have 7.5 and I can't upgrade, 'cause my old nvidia card doesn't support newer versions.

Thank you in advance!

@ax34 Looks like an upstream issue.

ax34 commented on 2019-01-01 16:26 (UTC)

CMake Error in CMakeLists.txt: Imported target "opencv_calib3d" includes non-existent path

"//include/opencv4"

in its INTERFACE_INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES. Possible reasons include:

  • The path was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.

  • An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.

  • The installation package was faulty and references files it does not provide.

This gives a different output compared to waifu2x. The author of waifu2x said somewhere on its issue tracker that the waifu2x-converter-cpp uses outdated algorithms or something, which could explain why it's not as good as the original waifu2x.

Be wary of these waifu2x-converter packages, they are not as good as proper waifu2x!
