One the Ubuntu installation of simplecv is done, execution is not possible because of simplecv.png not found error. Its easily rectifiable. One needs to create a new folder called sampleimages using sudo rights under SimpleCV directory in python and copy the image there. Then it works properly.

I would like to rectify this error. How do I proceed ?

EDIT: I know how to rectify the error. I got it working by copying the image. I meant to say whether there is anyway this could be done automatically when one installs the package.

The assumption here is that you're using python 2.7.x

Go here https://github.com/sightmachine/SimpleCV/tree/develop/SimpleCV

Download the sampleimages folder

Navigate to the /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/SimpleCV

folder with (sudo priviledges)

sudo nautilus (for gtk users)

and simply copy the sampleimages folder there and you should be ok. Other images in the folder might be used when running examples so it's good to copy everything.
