Hey, I was trying to install this package from source :

I cannot build the package. Apparently, there is some dependency error. It says,

[rospack] couldn't find dependency [pcl_visualization] of [ppl_detection]

What can I do to resolve this issue? Thanks in advance

It is complaining about a missing dependency in your package. It needs the package "pcl_visualization"

You might want to confirm if you do not have the package "pcl_visualization".

 roscd pcl_visualization 

If you cannot find it, you would have to obtain it from this source

Thanks. I had tried that out. I went back to ubuntu 10.10 from 11.04. That solved the problem.

More specifically, "sudo apt-get install ros-electric-perception_pcl_addons" should solve the issue (if you're on electric).
