# Invoking “cmake” failed

I am unable to solve this problem. I tried to run catkin_make command in catkin_ws directory

Invoking "cmake" failed  ## 2 Answers I solved this problem using the following command:- pip install -U rosdep rosinstall_generator wstool rosinstall six vcstools  Execute the following: $$pip install virtualenv$$ virtualenv <your name of choice, call it v>$ source <your name of choice, that is v>/bin/activate


Running catkin_make after doing the above worked for me.
