The folder doesn't contain a stack.xml so it is not recognized as a ROS meta-package (stack).

So you will have to rosmake individual packages inside that folder.

Please note that rosmake will soon be obsolete. This means a catkin package is much better than a rosmake package.

I would suggest that you use @fivef 's JacoROS. It is very stable. I just tried it and seems to work very fine! There is also a fork that I have created with certain added features.

Please see:
