Post Use Utilite for Facial Detection and Recognition
Utilite can detect and recognize faces in Linux using the Open Source Computer Vision Library (OpenCV).

Facedetect is a simple command line Python application which demonstrates this ability. Facedetect has the ability to find faces in photographs. Other available applications can detect faces in real time using webcams.

To install Facedetect:

1. Install the packages python-opencv, python-numpy, and libopencv-dev.
2. Download Facedetect. Follow the github link here:
3. Extract the contents of the zip file and place facedetect in /usr/local/bin

For examples of the various command line options see:
