I've tried to run the first example script on Ubuntu and got following errors while trying to load an image.

    IOError                                   Traceback (most recent call last)
/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/SimpleCV/Shell/Shell.pyc in <module>()
----&gt; 1 img = Image("simplecv")

/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/SimpleCV/ImageClass.pyc in __init__(self, source, camera, colorSpace, verbose, sample, cv2image)
    785                     self._bitmap = cv.LoadImage(self.filename, iscolor=cv.CV_LOAD_IMAGE_COLOR)
    786                 except:
--&gt; 787                     self._pil ="RGB")
    788                     self._bitmap = cv.CreateImageHeader(self._pil.size, cv.IPL_DEPTH_8U, 3)
    789                     cv.SetData(self._bitmap, self._pil.tostring())

/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/PIL/Image.pyc in open(fp, mode)
   1986     if isStringType(fp):
   1987         filename = fp
-&gt; 1988         fp =, "rb")
   1989     else:
   1990         filename = ""

IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/SimpleCV/sampleimages/simplecv.png'

This is a known issue:

You will need to copy a picture into the directory in the error message. Alternatively, download the source from GitHub and install using setuptools.
