Full install of mousetrap complete. Config file was manipulated to include failed dependency on 'python-opencv' which has been updated and the package is now referred to as 'cv'. Other dependencies are outdated or the names have been changed as well (xlib-python, etc). New errors with 'gobject' have been identified. Here is the recorded error when running mousetrap:


 ImportError: could not import gobject
 (error was: ImportError('When using gi.repository you must not import static modules like "gobject".
 Please change all occurrences of "import gobject" to "from gi.repository import GObject".',))

Will attempt to remove instances of broken dependency opencv to the newer cv

  • Fix: replace the "opencv.cv" in _ocv.py on line 290 with "cv"

12.17.2012

Bug for pygobject is here: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=649861

  • The fix is to upgrade to version 3 of gtk?
  • Changed line in configure.in file to AM_CHECK_PYMOD(cv,,,[AC_MSG_ERROR(Could not find python module cv)]) to fix opencv problem when creating make files
  • Highgui no longer exists in the new API for cv (once known as opencv) and it should just be called as cv.whatever.
  • cvCreateCameraCapture() no longer exists, replaced with cv.CaptureFromCAM().

  • In this particular file: widgets.py, we actually want to import gobject directly and type_register the Mapper using gobject. After doing this, I have the Window pop up and now a new error has come up.

and this:

 (mousetrap:19550): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "clearlooks",


I believe this is explained in this reported bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bzr-gtk/+bug/923824

  • There is a whole big issue with dependencies surrounding pygobject, pygtk, and gtk that are causing errors.


12.20.2012

Looked into error with pygobject, gtk and pygtk and found that the import gi must be the first import in main.py

1.9.2013

Looks like there are some inconsistencies with opencv. Going through and removing outdated methods. I was also looking to see how the camera is initiated, reading through code.

1.11.2013

Was able to get rid of the small_img error after trying several adaptations of opencv methods.

  • cvSize no longer exists and the python tuple (int, int) should be used instead.

  • Fixed most of the Point errors; make sure cvPoint is just a python tuple
  • Load() is the new cvLoadHaarClassifierCascade()
  • The points variable in _ocv.py looks like this: ((173, 130, 145, 145), 15) but it is used as if it was a series of points, so that was changed to r[0][0] and so forth.

Some examples of point errors/changes:

  • TermCriteria doesn't exist, and there's little documentation on the method on how to create the calculation for optical flow for the new version of cv.

Description of CalcOpticalFlowPyrLK()

  • Does not have an example or descriptive errors when fails.
 Parameters:	
 prevImg – first 8-bit input image or pyramid constructed by buildOpticalFlowPyramid().
 nextImg – second input image or pyramid of the same size and the same type as prevImg.
 prevPts – vector of 2D points for which the flow needs to be found; point coordinates must be single-precision floating-point numbers.
 nextPts – output vector of 2D points (with single-precision floating-point coordinates) containing the calculated new positions of input features in the second image; when OPTFLOW_USE_INITIAL_FLOW flag is passed, the vector must have the same size as in the input.
 status – output status vector; each element of the vector is set to 1 if the flow for the corresponding features has been found, otherwise, it is set to 0.
 err – output vector of errors; each element of the vector is set to an error for the corresponding feature, type of the error measure can be set in flags parameter; if the flow wasn’t found then the error is not defined (use the status parameter to find such cases).
 winSize – size of the search window at each pyramid level.
 maxLevel – 0-based maximal pyramid level number; if set to 0, pyramids are not used (single level), if set to 1, two levels are used, and so on; if pyramids are passed to input then algorithm will use as many levels as pyramids have but no more than maxLevel.
 criteria – parameter, specifying the termination criteria of the iterative search algorithm (after the specified maximum number of iterations criteria.maxCount or when the search window moves by less than criteria.epsilon.
 flags –
 operation flags:
 OPTFLOW_USE_INITIAL_FLOW uses initial estimations, stored in nextPts; if the flag is not set, then prevPts is copied to nextPts and is considered the initial estimate.
 OPTFLOW_LK_GET_MIN_EIGENVALS use minimum eigen values as an error measure (see minEigThreshold description); if the flag is not set, then L1 distance between patches around the original and a moved point, divided by number of pixels in a window, is used as a error measure.
 minEigThreshold – the algorithm calculates the minimum eigen value of a 2x2 normal matrix of optical flow equations (this matrix is called a spatial gradient matrix in [Bouguet00]), divided by number of pixels in a window; if this value is less than minEigThreshold, then a corresponding feature is filtered out and its flow is not processed, so it allows to remove bad points and get a performance boost

  • Noted that mousetrap and gnome-mousetrap are in the Ubuntu repository. Ignoring this and following instructions provided by the MouseTrap GNOME Live! project page…
  • Installation went as expected. Ran into every issue in the 'Troubleshooting' table, but that seems to be expected behavior.
  • Running MouseTrap with command 'mousetrap'. Expected errors due to lack of webcam. Otherwise seems to run without issue (preferences window pops up when button clicked, and so forth).
  • Quits without issue.

Thoughts on Install Process:

  • Noted that it might be nice if they add the commands for the RPM package manager to the instructions.
  • "Troubleshooting" should be a link to the Troubleshooting section for user-friendliness.
  • 'Dependency hell' is tedious. Due to the fact that MouseTrap is in the Ubuntu repositories suggests it might be in others as well. It might be useful to include this fact in the install instructions.
  • Else it might be useful for the autogen.sh shell file to automatically detect if a package is installed (it already does this) and installs them if they are not. This will run into an issue with different package management systems. A different shell file for the popular ones (APT and RPM)?
  • A GUI installer would be the most user-friendly, but that's not the Linux MO.

  • Webcam received and set up. Seems to be recognized OOTB on Ubuntu -- the light goes on when in use, etc.
  • When running Mousetrap, it shows a blank window (most of the time) or a frozen video frame (only seen this once). In the terminal, it repeatedly displays errors similar to this;
Corrupt JPEG data: 1 extraneous bytes before marker 0xd9
  • When running again with webcam unplugged, it runs fine.

1/25/13

Replaced Ubuntu with Fedora 18 on system. Webcam works out of the box. Everything works nicely. Except for the new UI for Anaconda, but I digress. Had issues installing Mousetrap. Full details below...

Installing Fedora:

I downloaded the ISO image for the Fedora 18 Network Install CD from here http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-options#formats. This is good if you have fast internet access. This is ideal since a) it's a small(er) download, and b) dd takes a while (see below).

Instead of a CD/DVD, I decided to use a USB stick. I used the Fedora-suggested LiveUSB tool, but it produced a USB stick that either a) is not recognized as bootable, or b) freezes at or after the "Secure boot not enabled" screen. So I used dd instead (a nifty tool, which should already be installed if you're using a UNIX-based OS, that copies a disk image to a destination byte-for-byte). To put the .iso image onto my USB stick, I used the command,

# dd if=./Fedora-18-x86_64-netinst.iso of=/etc/rdisk1

I had to be root to do this (hence the # above). Note that I also put "r" before the device name (in the above example, I used rdisk1 instead of disk1). This enables direct access, which speeds things up considerably. I used

$ fdisk -l

to find out the location of the USB drive.

Once I executed the dd command, it sat there seemingly doing nothing. dd can take a while (hence the reason I didn't use the Live DVD ISO!).

After it was done, booted from the USB drive, followed the (horrid) Anaconda installation process (beware of the terrifying partitioning part!).

After that's done, booted up and installed the b43 driver for my wireless card using the guide here, http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#Fedora. Everything works great, including the webcam.

Installing Mousetrap:

I attempted to install all the dependencies listed on the Mousetrap GNOME Live! site using the usual yum install <package>. However pygtk, python-pyspi and libglib2.0 are not in the repos.

  Install method
 Install Dependencies:
 * gnome-common
 * glib2-devel
 * intltool
 * python-devel
 * opencv-python
 * python-xlib
 Run Commands:
 -> run git branch fix_install
 -> run ./autogen.sh
 -> make
 -> make install
 -> run mousetrap from /src
 (let me know if this works for you --Amber)

2/8/13

Installed Mousetrap successfully via Amber's instructions above. Ran into an error;

 ImportError: could not import gobject (error was: ImportError('When using gi.repository you must not import static modules 
 like "gobject". Please change all occurrences of "import gobject" to "from gi.repository import GObject".',))

2/16/13

Started on learning the Python language using "Learning Python, 4th Edition."

 I don't think that you are in the correct branch. You downloaded a clone via git, right?
 I put up an entire install method, see if you missed something.

NOTES TO SELF:

Worked on getting OpenCV webcam view into GTK+ UI.

Wrote a very simple program using straight OpenCV API. Works fine.

Wrote a GTK+ based program that takes a photo via the webcam and saves it as a file. Also works fine.

With those experiences in my belt, I tried integrating the two, to little success.

Yes, I've tried using the photo program I wrote above to brute-force a display of a video via a loop -- but knew before I begun that it's a horribly bad (and potentially dangerous!) idea.

Googling keeps leading me to GdkPixBuf (previously gtk.gdk.PixBuf in PyGTK). Requires iplimage (used by OpenCV) to be converted into PIL (Python Image Language) before it can be converted into PixBuf via new_from_data. OpenCV used to have adaptors that can do this, but it was, for some reason, deprecated with no equivalent replacement.

There's some nonsense about NumPy and/or Matlibplot as well.

But all of this is moot for the time being due to finding out that the new_from_data API seems to be broken for Python -- http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10284465/gdkpixbuf-pixbufdestroynotify-notimplementederror-python-gtk3

One possible alternative is to use new_from_array, creating an array from the image via Array (or NumPy array, not sure). But I haven't looked too deeply on how to a) convert an iplimage to a PIL then/or to an array, and b) how to use new_from_array.

Another possible alternative -- due to OpenCV using a Qt backend -- is to use Plug() and Socket() in GTK+ to embed the OpenCV window into a GTK+ window. Haven't figured out how to do this due to OpenCV's limited UI API. Maybe a Qt API can interact with windows created by OpenCV?

Another alternative; I checked out Cheese (a open source Photobooth rip off that comes preinstalled with Fedora) -- turns out it uses Gstreamer to capture images from the webcam. As Gstreamer works great with GTK+, perhaps one solution would be to use Gstreamer for the UI, and OpenCV for the background heavy-lifting?

4/30/13

After the discussion on Friday of how MouseTrap was supposed to work, and whether it even worked "in the wild" at all, I decided to compile it and see what I can find out with all that I've learned in the past few months in the hopes of gathering some useful information for future use.

We know that MouseTrap compiles in Ubuntu 10.4, so I installed Ubuntu 10.4 on a virtual machine, and followed the instructions on the MouseTrap GNOME Live! webpage. Additionally, I compiled Mousetrap with the --enable-doxygen and --enable-docbook flags (from the bottom of the installation instructions page) to get the doxygen-generated developer documentation and user documentation, respectively. Those are not obtainable without compiling MouseTrap, and we all know it does not compile in Fedora 18.

The user documentation (docbook) and doxygen-generated documentation are on my GitHub repo; ([1])

Additionally, I ran Mousetrap multiple times, and found three "scenarios", each occurring at random. I have documented the "scenarios" below.


The first scenario is where Mousetrap runs, and displays a frozen captured frame from the webcam, and nothing else. The output in the terminal is as follows:

The second scenario is where Mousetrap runs, with no image displayed. The output in the terminal is as follows:

The third scenario, which is rare compared to the above two, is rather interesting. Mousetrap begins with a completely blank window (no widgets, only the title bar) and hijacks the mouse. Most of the time, the mouse is stuck at the lower left corner, but occasionally it would flicker around the screen (no smooth motion, it simply appears and disappears at seemingly random points). This is not in response to the webcam feed as far as I could tell. The behavior does not change even when the webcam is covered. There is also no way to exit the program; I had to do a killall.

The terminal output is:

john@john-desktop:~$ mousetrap

... and so on infinitely.

Nicole's Status

1.25.2013

Fedora 18 was successfully installed. Instructions are now on the "Getting Started" page.

2.5.2013

MouseTrap was fully installed. Instructions are now on the "Getting Started" page. I encountered the same first error:

 ImportError: could not import gobject (error was: ImportError('When using gi.repository you must not import static modules 
 like "gobject". Please change all occurrences of "import gobject" to "from gi.repository import GObject".',))
  • Amber, have you put up your latest fork onto your github yet?
 Yes, do you have git installed? (Not really sure how much git you know, so I'll just put up instructions for all.)
 If not, open a terminal, become root
 cd to /opt
 mkdir git  (just fyi you can put your repo anywhere, this is just how I was taught)
 run yum install git-core
 cd into git folder
 run git clone git://github.com/amberheilman/mousetrap.git
 now you have pulled down my code.
 To start using the code I'm currently working on:
 run:
 git checkout fix_install (my branch)
 git pull
 * DO NOT MAKE CHANGES HERE (we should all be working in separate branches)
 git branch INSERT_BRANCH_NAME (this clones my branch and creates a new one)
 git checkout INSERT_BRANCH_NAME (this opens up your branch that you just created)
 git branch (now you can see the branch your in with a *, and all others under this git repo)
 * We should also be making commits on a frequent basis with commit titles that show exactly what was changed
 * Hope this helps
   @Amber from Stoney: It sounds like you're suggesting that Nicole share your repository.
   If so, she'll need to create a GitHub account, and you'll need to add her as a contributor on your fork.
   (cont.) Alternatively, when Nicole has something to contribute, she could make a patch and send it to you.
   (cont.) Another alternative, Nicole could fork your fork using GitHub (she'll need to create an account).
   When she has something to contribute, she can make a pull request to your fork, you can review the changes
   and accept/reject. Directions/tutorial for this approach are here: https://help.github.com/articles/fork-a-repo .

2.7.2013

Made my own github account and forked off of amber's at: https://github.com/WNEmousetrap/mousetrap

Ran mousetrap and now getting error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
 File "mousetrap/app/main.py", line 42, in <module>
   import environment as env
ImportError: No module named environment
 NOTE: Remember even if you download my code you still need to run the install
 so cd into the git repo /mousetrap and do a ./autogen.sh which checks to make sure
 your dependencies are there (see what I wrote to john). Then you will have to run "make"
 after that is done run "sudo make install"
 Then you should be able to cd to /mousetrap/src and type "mousetrap" to run the program. Otherwise
 it will give you errors like above because files were not created by the make command.
 *Side note:, if you would like to be added to my fork I can do that easily, just send me your username.
 Plus I think it will be easier for us all to communicate if we're working off of the same repo. (-Amber)

2.12.2013

Started to document OpenCV using the information at http://docs.opencv.org/ . I'm starting right with the Introduction and reading through. Trying to get definitions and history from here as much as I can.

2.13.2013

Continuing documentation. Found a few sources towards the community. Getting into reading about API Concepts currently.

2.15.2013

Started looking at OpenCV 2 documentation. Organized the Dev Help page. Starting to focus on CV 2 documentation for now, most of the general information seems to be the same anyways.

2.19.2013

Found the meeting notes from the OpenCV community; starting to read through them with the first meeting notes starting in 2008 (http://code.opencv.org/projects/opencv/wiki/Meeting_notes)

  • stopped at 2009-02-03 for now

2.20.2013

Continued with meeting notes -

2.21.2013

Meeting notes - stopped at 2009-06-02 for now.

3.28.2013

Started to look into what the Makefiles in mousetrap really do; looking through the pdf slides for GNU "autotools" from http://www.lrde.epita.fr/~adl/autotools.html

3.30.2013

Continued reading through slideshow.

4.2.2013

Finished slideshow in preparation for the sprint on Friday. Started researching on Gnome's site to see how they talk about autotools for their projects.

4.4.2013

Found a few things on the Gnome site:

  1. A basic Gnome project tutorial: https://developer.gnome.org/anjuta-build-tutorial/stable/index-info.html.en REALLY GOOD!!
  2. A suggestion for a "modernized" autotools: https://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/ModernAutotools
  3. The site does bump me back to the original pdf slideshow that I read through. This is a good sign!!
The basic tutorial is very good to read through. It is a little smaller than the pdf so it would take much less time to get through, 
but it  still has great information. I still recommend reading through at least parts of the pdf if you have time, but the tutorial is an 
EXCELLENT starting point!

4.5.2013

Mousetrap Sprint all day!! Worked on understanding Makefiles.am's and created a Directory Tree for whole mousetrap folder (not just src) and accompanying Makefile.am's in those directories if they existed.

Makefile Tree

4.11.2013

Starting to work through unit testing the "app" and GUI section of the project. Reading up on how gtk works and how the code should look. Will then look at the mousetrap code and add in the functionality that they have to see where the program "breaks."

  • When only trying to write a file to import gtk I got the error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "gtk_test.py", line 1, in <module>
    import gtk
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py", line 40, in <module>
    from gtk import _gtk
ImportError: /lib64/libEGL.so.1: undefined symbol: wl_display_dispatch_queue_pending


4.12.2013

Still reading through the tutorial about gtk. Going to try to make a small test program for a sample gtk application. Also looking into fixing the gtk import issue.

Fixed the gtk issue! It was a simple version issue. All I needed to do was run:

sudo yum update libwayland-server
sudo yum update libwayland-client

The version I was on was 1.0.0. A new symbol was added in 1.0.2. The most recent version out is 1.0.5.

I managed to create a small working gtk application window!!! Below is the code you can put into a test file (such as mine "gtk_sample.py) and run with "python2 gtk_sample.py":

# example gtk program
import pygtk
pygtk.require('2.0')
import gtk

class gtk_sample:
  def callback(self, widget, data):
    print("Hello again - %s was pressed" % data)

  def delete_event(self, widget, event, data=None):
    gtk.main_quit()
    return False

  def __init__(self):
    self.window = gtk.Window(gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL)
    self.window.set_title("gtk example")
    self.window.connect("delete_event", self.delete_event)
    self.window.set_border_width(50)
    self.box1 = gtk.HBox(False, 0)
    self.window.add(self.box1)

    self.button1 = gtk.Button("Yes")
    self.button1.connect("clicked", self.callback, "yes")
    self.box1.pack_start(self.button1, True, True, 0)
    self.button1.show()

    self.button2 = gtk.Button("No")
    self.button2.connect("clicked", self.delete_event, "no")
    self.box1.pack_start(self.button2, True, True, 0)
    self.button2.show()

    self.box1.show()

    self.window.show()

def main():
  gtk.main()
if __name__ == '__main__':
  sample = gtk_sample()
  main()


5.15.2013

I returned to work today since it is the first week of summer break for me. I will normally be in the lab and working on MouseTrap from 1-5pm on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Today I fixed the Ubuntu machine (as per Amber's and Logan's suggestions from a week ago, THANKS AGAIN!) and was able to get past the weird gi.repository issue, though I have an inkling on how to fix it on the Fedora too, I just haven't explored that yet. I was able to debug the code I rewrote from the original source code for the GUI and it doesn't break... but it also doesn't show me an interface.

I moved on to completely writing my own version of the ui.main file and have an interface that shows up with 3 buttons! I am now looking through the ui.settings_gui file and trying to debug that show it shows up when I run my file.

6.12.2013

Sorry I haven't updated in a while, I've been head over heels busy.... Anyways, I have been working on trying to get the GUI interface working with GTK 3 based code. I started to re-code the top main.py in the app/ directory and will be continuing to debug it on Friday. Today I am working on looking through other files in the app/ directory and rewriting them to be GTK 3 friendly.
