I keep getting this error while porting old code to adjust to the current ROS. Any idea to workaround would be appreciated. Let me notice that I'm not that familiar with boost::bind yet, and I'm asking at this forum because I wonder if this is either bind question, ROS' or else.

Extracted code:

class CS {
    ros::NodeHandle *ros_node_;
    void bvmHandler(void *flag) {
        *(bool *) flag = true;
    void funcB() {
        ros_node_->subscribe("topic", //
          1000, //
          &CS::bvmHandler, //     <----- line #431


CS.cpp:431:   instantiated from here
/opt/ros/electric/stacks/ros_comm/clients/cpp/roscpp_traits/include/ros/message_traits.h:121: error: ‘__s_getMD5Sum’ is not a member of ‘void*’

Environment: Ubuntu 10.10, ROS Electric

Update 10/5/2011) Thanks to @Eric Perko, I modified the code to workaround (at least compile moves on to the next phase):

#include "std_msgs/Bool.h"
void bvmHandler(std_msgs::BoolConstPtr *flag)

Take a look at the roscpp::NodeHandle docs for the subscribe method. These valid signatures are also included on the wiki. None of those look like they will work with a function that takes a void* argument. All seem to require a function or method that takes a ros message either by value or shared_ptr.

Note that your callback function should take some type of ROS message, not a void*. Changing CS::bvmHandler to something like CS::bvmHandler(std_msgs::Bool::Ptr flag) would probably compile (once you fix up the function body logic for the new flag type), since it gives the compiler enough hints about which subscribe template to pick and instantiate.

There's a list of valid callback signatures on the wiki at

Thanks. Your link didn't open itself. This should work

Added the list of signatures on the wiki to my answer.
