Hey I am trying to follow the ROS tutorials on Navigation Stack

I can successfully compile tf_broadcaster.cpp but it throws a bunch of errors with tf_listener.cpp. Could you please have a look and tell me what should I do?

I have even tried copy/pasting the code from the website, still doesn't work.

Running ros groovy with ubuntu 12.04

Tutorial from here http://wiki.ros.org/navigation/Tutorials/RobotSetup/TF Apparently, I cannot add links because I do not have enough karma.

It's probably not linking tf. What is your CMakeLists.txt and what build system do you use?

Added CMakeLists.txt. I am using catkin.

It builds successfully, and while "Linking CXX executable" it gives these errors. Added the two lines before the error message which says precisely that.

Did you found a solution? I ran into the same Problem at the moment.

Sorry I did not. Post the answer here if you do manage to find it!

Without looking at it much, the part of the CMakeLists.txt target_link_libraries(tf_listener ${catkin_libraries}) seems wrong. CMake variables are case sensitive, so you need to use catkin_LIBRARIES.

Check your cmakelist if you don't tell catkin to find tf you'll get this error.
