vtk is now required since opencv4

in /usr/lib/pkgconfig/opencv4.pc there is -lopencv_viz

so if you use opencv4.pc you'll get warnings like this one at link time, needed by /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/8.2.1/../../../../lib/, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

and the app will not link,

the solutions is to install vtk, remove -lopencv_viz from the pc file, or not use the pc file at all

This task depends upon

The correct solution is (3), in fact the pkgconfig file is deprecated in 4.0 and not installed by default.
