2017-10-23 Facedetect

Ok, so facedetect is failing me. When I ran fgallery I got this error:

  File "/Users/alex/bin/facedetect", line 140, in face_detect
    flags = cv2.cv.CV_HAAR_DO_CANNY_PRUNING
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'cv'

Based on an answer on StackExchange, I installed the latest facedetect from GitHub.

Now I get a different error:

facedetect: error: cannot load HAAR_FRONTALFACE_ALT2 from /usr/share/opencv/haarcascades/haarcascade_frontalface_alt2.xml

This directory is wrong: my opencv stuff got installed in /usr/local/opt/opencv@3 by Homebrew. I should be using the --data-dir option but I opted to change line 37 in facedetect instead. DATA_DIR should point to the directory containing haarcascades:

DATA_DIR = '/usr/local/opt/opencv@3/share/OpenCV/'
