cvFloodFill: one example

In the OpenCv, the definition of cvFloodFill is:

void cvFloodFill( CvArr* img, CvPoint seed, double newVal,
double lo=0, double up=0, CvConnectedComp* comp=0,
int flags=4, CvArr* mask=0 );
#define CV_FLOODFILL_FIXED_RANGE (1 << 16)
#define CV_FLOODFILL_MASK_ONLY (1 << 17)

The trick is how to define the flags. One example is:
int flags = connectivity + (new_mask_val << 8 ) + CV_FLOODFILL_FIXED_MASK_ONLY;

where connectivity can be 4 or 8, new_mask_val is the gray value to be assigned to the mask, e.g., 255.

JAVACV: no jniopencv_core in java.library.path

To solve it, adding following lines to ~/.bashrc:
#For JavaCv
export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:~/Src/javacv/javacv-bin/javacpp.jar:~/Src/javacv/javacv-bin/javacv.jar:~/Src/javacv/javacv-bin/javacv-linux-x86.jar

The key solution is the javacv-linux-x86.jar. If you are using 64bits windows, then you have to choose javacv-windows-x86_64.jar.

Read temperature from sensors in GPU

The powerful tool is xsensors:
First install lm-sensors:
$ sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
Then run sensors-detect in root
$ sudo sensors-detect
Answer YES to all.
Then run sudo /etc/init.d/module-init-tools restart
Answer No.
Next install xsensors and run it by:
$ sudo apt-get install xsensors
$ sudo xsensors

Recover the default nvidia driver

Just do:
$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
That's it.
