Hello,

I am trying to run this tutorial http://wiki.ros.org/navigation/Tutori... . For some reason I keep getting this error: By the way I am running groovy and ubuntu 12.04

    CMake Error at /opt/ros/groovy/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:72 (find_package):
  Could not find a configuration file for package move_base_msgs.

  Set move_base_msgs_DIR to the directory containing a CMake configuration
  file for move_base_msgs.  The file will have one of the following names:

    move_base_msgsConfig.cmake
    move_base_msgs-config.cmake

Call Stack (most recent call first):
  simple_navigation_goals/CMakeLists.txt:7 (find_package)


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
Invoking "cmake" failed

I run rospack find move_base_msgs and it finds the package under :

ubuntu@ubuntu:~/catkin_ws$ rospack find move_base_msgs
/opt/ros/groovy/stacks/navigation/move_base_msgs

I have looked for the config file cmake is asking for but I don't see it anywhere. even tried reinstalling the navigation package completely to see if there was a file that I deleted by accident:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~/catkin_ws$ sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-navigation
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
ros-groovy-navigation is already the newest version.
ros-groovy-navigation set to manually installed.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 167 not upgraded.
ubuntu@ubuntu:~/catkin_ws$

Nothing though, I still get the CMake error after doing this.

If anyone has any insight as to what is wrong please let me know.

This is my simple_navigation_goalsConfig-version.cmake

# generated from catkin/cmake/template/pkgConfig-version.cmake.in
set(PACKAGE_VERSION "0.0.0")

set(PACKAGE_VERSION_EXACT False)
set(PACKAGE_VERSION_COMPATIBLE False)

if("${PACKAGE_FIND_VERSION}" VERSION_EQUAL "${PACKAGE_VERSION}")
  set(PACKAGE_VERSION_EXACT True)
  set(PACKAGE_VERSION_COMPATIBLE True)
endif()

if("${PACKAGE_FIND_VERSION}" VERSION_LESS "${PACKAGE_VERSION}")
  set(PACKAGE_VERSION_COMPATIBLE True)
endif()

Can you post the CMake and package of your simple_navigation_goals package, please?

Your talking about the whole code? Where is the CMake file located?

choog gravatar imagechoog ( 2014-08-01 19:47:35 -0600 )edit

Both should be in the root of your package.

can you post the package.xml file please?

I've added just about all the files now.

I also noticed that my move_base_msgs package is located under my stack/navigation/move_base_msgs folder. This package does not have a cmake folder therefore there is no move_base_msgs.cmake file.

Can you please post the CmakeLists.txt that is in the same folder as your package.xml?

I have updated my post and you can see my CMakeLists.txt file. It is in the same folder as my package.xml. So far this is the only tutorial that has given me issues like that.

I figured out the problem. The problem is that move_base_msgs only works with rosbuild. This package does not work with catkin. For anyone out there with this issue in the future just create your package with rosbuild.

How can I notify the people managing the ros wiki to make a note of that for people to know right away to use rosbuild or to download the catkinized move_base_msgs packages.

That shouldn't be true. Which version of ROS/Navigation are you using?

How can I find this out? I know I am using ros groovy

My CMakeLists.txt file for my navigation stack says: VERSION 2.4.6

Navigation for Groovy is built in rosbuild. You can't build catkin packages on top of rosbuild packages.

Same error occurred at building navigation from source for melodic.
I resolved the problem by putting navigation_msgs to src directory of catkin work space.

cd ~/ros_catkin_ws/src
git clone https://github.com/ros-planning/navigation_msgs.git
