I am new to SimpleCV, earlier when i was trying a sample code the ipython terminal gave me IO error which said it did not have simplecv.png in simplecv/sampleimages folder which i tried to copy using the following command after entering the root

root@ubuntu:/home/kartik# cp /home/kartik/Desktop/Major/SimpleCV.png /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/SimpleCV/sampleimages

the image is visible in the sample images folder but seems corrupt to me bcoz when u double click on it, it does not open error occurs and when i run the code in ipython i get the error below:

VIDIOCQUERYMENU: Invalid argument VIDIOCQUERYMENU: Invalid argument VIDIOC_QUERYMENU: Invalid argument select timeout

there is no soundcard

Helli vijayrm, i have already done it...but wat i did is un-installed the deb package and installed it from github, it is working but i can see that the folder of simplecv has less features like HAARlike folder is missing as it was when i installed the deb package
