I've recently been encountering an issue when trying to create a working catkin workspace for ROS through RoboStack.
Robostack is utilized to create a working ROS environment installed in Conda.
When activating the environment in Conda, I have been able to successfully very that ROS is working when I run the
set ros command through the miniconda command prompt:
(robostackenv) C:\.....>set ros ROS_DISTRO=noetic ROS_ETC_DIR=C:\Users\user\miniconda3\envs\robostackenv\Library\etc\ros ROS_IP=127.0.0.1 ROS_MASTER_URI=http://127.0.0.1:11311 ROS_OS_OVERRIDE=conda:win64 ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=C:\Users\user\miniconda3\envs\robostackenv\Library\share ROS_PYTHON_VERSION=3 ROS_ROOT=C:/Users/user/miniconda3/envs/robostackenv/Library/share/ros ROS_VERSION=1
I've also installed various extensions to succesfully utilize ROS within VSCode (NOT the full IDE Visual Studio one). These extensions include:
- C/C++ (VsCode is configured with a GCC compiler, which allows it to run C//C++ files already
However, for some reason I can't create a workspace for ROS. I've already created a
src folder by:
(robostackenv) C:\.....>robostackenv\mkdir catkin_workspace (robostackenv) C:\.....>robostackenv\catkin_workspace\mkdir src
But every time I try to utilize catkin_make within the main workspace directory, it ends up failing:
(robostackenv) C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace>catkin_make Base path: C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace Source space: C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\src Build space: C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\build Devel space: C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\devel Install space: C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\install Copying file from "C:\Users\user\miniconda3\envs\robostackenv\Library\share\catkin\cmake\toplevel.cmake" to "C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\src\CMakeLists.txt" #### #### Running command: "cmake C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\src -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DCATKIN_DEVEL_PREFIX=C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\devel -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\install -G NMake Makefiles" in "C:\Users\user\ProgrammingProjects\robostackenv\catkin_workspace\build" #### CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:6 (project): Running 'nmake' '-?' failed with: The system cannot find the file specified CMake Error: CMAKE_C_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage CMake Error: CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER not set, after EnableLanguage -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred! See also "C:/Users/user/ProgrammingProjects/robostackenv/catkin_workspace/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log". Invoking "cmake" failed
What am I doing that's wrong? ROS is installed properly with RoboStack,
set ros shows that it works, my files are named corrently, what gives?
If I run,
catkin_init_workspace, it'll generate a
CMakeLists.txt file, but that is it.
