I did a upgrade to Indigo so I could get Rviz working properly. I am trying to install the xv_laser_driver. I get an error with catkin_make. This is what I get:

No need to comment anything, just declare rpms in xv11_laser.h

gedit ~/catkin_ws/src/xv_11_laser_driver/include/xv_11_laser_driver/xv11_laser.h

Add the following to line 43 after public: then save the file

uint16_t rpms;

Run catkin_make in your catkin workspace, and you should be all good now :)

cd ~/catkin_ws/
source devel/setup.bash

Tested with a Jeston TK1 running Ubutnu 14.04 & Indigo

Hi , I just had the same error also with indigo, I fixed it by adding a "uint16_t rpms; " definition to the vx11_laser.cpp file and then it gave an error in the publisher file which i got around by commenting out the line " //; " after that the catkin_make worked ok. then had to run sudo su to let rosrun to be found and allow the ttyUSB0 port to be opened. Laser scan now displaying in rviz ! Im not a SW eng and its a bit of a hack, the rpm data is most likley not critical anyway , hope it works for you.
