I'm very new to ROS, and fairly new to Linux, so keep in mind I'm pretty confused. I know this isn't enough detail to solve the problem, but if someone could tell me where to start to find out what's wrong it would be a great help.
I'm running ROS Indigo on Ubuntu 14.04
I'm trying to follow this tutorial http://wiki.ros.org/rviz/Tutorials/Markers%3A%20Basic%20Shapes
As the tutorial says I've
- gone to my catkin_ws/src folder and created a package using the command: catkin_create_pkg using_markers roscpp visualization_msgs
- created the code file in src of that package, as shown
- modified CMakeLists.txt as shown
- (Here's where I had to vary from the instructions) the tutorial says
$ cd %TOP_DIR_YOUR_CATKIN_WORKSPACE%
If I go to the folder using_markers and do this it says it "must be invoked in the root of workspace" if I do it in the catkin_ws folder above that, it builds all my projects (which seems ok, but not ideal) if I build using "catkin_make using_markers" it builds and just does that package, so it seems ok, or maybe not, since it isn't working
I could swear it was working before. But now when I try to build it I get this warning
"CMake Error at /opt/ros/indigo/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:75 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "visuaization_msgs" with any of the following names: visuaization_msgsConfig.cmake visuaization_msgs-config.cmake "
It suggests " Add the installation prefix of "visuaization_msgs" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "visuaization_msgs_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "visuaization_msgs" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed. " I've tried and failed to do most of these things, but I don't really know what they mean. I looked at catkinConfig.cmake, but it makes no mention of visualization_msgs. I've searched help but I'm stuck at the moment. Why can't it find visualization_msgs now?
I reinstalled common_msgs with the command "sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-common-msgs", but it said nothing what updated or installed because it was already there. This is the stack that includes visualization_msgs, so it seems like that would mean it's available.
I thought maybe it was that I hadn't sourced it so I ran the command "/opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash" but that didn't seem to help
I figured maybe my installation was messed up so I tried a forced reinstall "sudo apt-get --reinstall install ros-indigo-desktop" That didn't help either.
Maybe it's something simpler? The build command I'm using is "cd catkin_ws" "catkin_make using_markers"
Sorry for the vague question. I'm very confused. Like I said, a suggestion of what to try next would be great.
