I am trying to install ORK on ubunto, but if I try to compile, I get the folliowing error

CMake Error at /opt/ros/indigo/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:75 (find_package): Could not find a package configuration file provided by "household_objects_database" with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "household_objects_database" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "household_objects_database_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files. If "household_objects_database" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed. Call Stack (most recent call first): tabletop/CMakeLists.txt:4 (find_package)

CMake Error: The following variables are used in this project, but they are set to NOTFOUND.

The package household_object_database is not found, but I have exactly used the instructions on

but I am wondering how I can fix this issue

You're probably missing this package?

Yes...that could be possible...but I have no idea how to install such "extra packages".

That might sound stupid, but I am total newbie at ROS and Ubuntu.....

Is there any installation guide? Thank you very much

How did you install ROS? Did you follow that ? If you did, then you can just run `sudo apt-get install ros-hydro-household-objects-database`. (replace with indigo if you installed indigo). Cheers

Yes, I did EXACTLY what is written in the install guide for Ubuntu 14.04 so I am using ROS Indigo. But if I use the command sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-household-objects-database the I receive the messagem that the package cannot be found. Other packages, like sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-household-objects-database-msgs will be found and correct installed...but not the household-objects-database. Any suggestions or solutions? Or should I try ROS Groovy? Thanks for your advice

It probably means that it is not yet released for indigo then. You can install the package from sources. There's a tutorial here: Make sure you use the *ROS* install procedure.
