Hello all, I have two packages: OpenRAVEROSInterp and myTestROS.

OpenRAVEROSInterp is a little package I developed which connects OpenRAVE and ROS. It works well and uses a file named ROSRobot.h which contains subscriptions/services to interact with robots in OpenRAVE. It is stored in

rospackages/OpenRAVEROSInterp/include/OpenRAVEROSInterp/ROSRobot.h

My other package myTestROS is attempting to use ROSRobot.h (just for fun). It's manifest.xml has

 <depend package="OpenRAVEROSInterp"/> 

When I run rosmake, I get...

 ...workspace/rospackages/myTestROS/src/TestClass.cpp:36:40: error: OpenRAVEROSInterp/ROSRobot.h: No such file or directory 

Where line 36 is:

#include <OpenRAVEROSInterp/ROSRobot.h>

Could anyone off any suggestions? Thank you.

You'll need to set some export tags in your package's manifest.xml. See the wikipage on manifests.

How come when you <depend package="tf">, you can $include<tf/tflistener.h> . What's the difference with my package?

Is OpenRAVEROSInterp in your $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH? Can you `roscd` to it?

@Constantin S This works for tf because it uses the export tags like @Mac said.

@joq Yes I can roscd to it. @tfoote Interesting, I thought he meant I had to add export flags to myTestROS. I am interested as to why this is so, I figured the rosmake system would be able to handle includes from other packages. I will examine the wiki page. Thank you all for your patience!
