    It is difficult to see exactly what you are trying to do without sharing the commands you are calling.

    If the package is not supported, you should try using Ubuntu in a Docker running on VOXL. See the docs here: https://docs.modalai.com/docker-on-voxl/

    In general, Ubuntu is easier to use if you are not comfortable creating your own packages, and the performance is typically on par or better as it is a pure 64-bit OS

  • Thank your for your reply.
    The command is pip3 install opencv-contrib-python-headless (=title of the question).
    Ubuntu docker is a good but not enough . I need this (opencv python package) on the target board, again like supported by modalai's python numpy package. Please help me to create/ download/install this python package on a voxl board.
    I need it for later using as ROS node (written in python)
