PCL dependencies on ROS electric

I was following a tutorial on PCL. It seems that I have a lot of functionalities that cannot be used. There are also some warnings on the header files. The header files that got warning are:

  • pcl/point_types.h
  • pcl/filters/passthrough.h
  • sensor_msgs/PointCloud2.h
  • pcl/ros/conversions.h
  • pcl/point_cloud.h

Do I need to explicitly add/install extra packages like pcl_filter? I have also been trying to install in on my "ROS electric" but it seems that it is not compatible with it. The pcl_filter that I used is from this.

The standalone PCL library is not compatible with ROS electric. This problem will be resolved in some future release.

To run PCL with ROS, install the perception_pcl stack, and perhaps perception_pcl_addons.

It seems to work but I did not manage to install perception_pcl_addons, but I guess that one is optional.
