ECE497 Notes on BeagleStache
BeagleStache is a fun demo using OpenCV to detect faces and give them a nice mustache.
Instructions for installing BeagleStache can be found at the link above. They are copied here for convenience.
Run the following as root on the BeagleBone:
git clone git://github.com/jadonk/stache cd stache make && make install
Now this will install a desktop icon called 'stache.desktop' that runs the shell script '~/stache/runstache'. By default this script will run the Twitter version that requires a Twitter account to be set up. I modified it to bypass that as below:
#!/bin/sh cd $HOME/stache ./stache
How to Run
Double click the desktop icon. If you encounter problems, you can make the following modifications to help debugging. In '~/stache/runstache' append a the line '$SHELL'. And in 'stache.desktop' set 'Terminal=true'
This fun little demo highlights the power of the BeagleBone to do real time video processing.
