Hi guys,

I am a new user of Octave, but quite experienced in Matlab. In Matlab i did
some image processing which i would like to redo with Octave. After
successful installation of the image package I ran into some trouble during
the installation of image-acquisition package.

I am working on a windows 7 pc and I get this error during installation
pkg install C:\Users\s106777\Downloads\image-acquisition-0.2.2.tar.gz

configure: error: unable to find the v4l2_open() function
checking for g++... g++
checking whether the C++ compiler works... yes
checking for C++ compiler default output file name... a.exe
checking for suffix of executables... .exe
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes
checking for mkoctfile... yes
checking for fltk-config... /usr/bin/fltk-config
checking for v4l2_open in -lv4l2... no

pkg: error running the configure script for image-acquisition.
error: called from 'configure_make' in file
near line 79, column 9

similar to discussed here.

There the following solution is posed.
'' Installing libv4l-dev fixed this.  ''

I tried to find out how to do this, but came up short. Furthermore, it seems
like this a Linux related solution? But I'm not certain of that.

All suggestions are welcome,

Thanks in advance,
