Hi there!

I have a question about the installation of ar_tools stack in catkin.

I will create an example empty project, with ar_tools stack. Following the tutorials..

$ source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash
$ mkdir -p ~/catkin_ws/src
$ cd ~/catkin_ws/src
$ catkin_init_workspace
$ cd ~/catkin_ws/
$ catkin_make
$ source devel/setup.bash

Once the project have been created and initialized, I get the source (because dont exists a catkin branch in source):

$ cd ~/catkin_ws/src
$ git clone -b catkin

And now, if I try to compile the project:

$ cd ~/catkin_ws/
$ catkin_make

I get this error message:

-- +++ processing catkin metapackage: 'ar_tools'
-- ==> add_subdirectory(ar_tools/ar_tools)
-- +++ processing catkin package: 'artoolkit'
-- ==> add_subdirectory(ar_tools/artoolkit)
-- +++ processing catkin package: 'ar_pose'
-- ==> add_subdirectory(ar_tools/ar_pose)
CMake Error at /home/redhome/jonyal/catkin_ws/devel/share/artoolkit/cmake/artoolkitConfig.cmake:141 (message):

  Did you find_package() it before the subdirectory containing its code is

  ar_tools/ar_pose/CMakeLists.txt:6 (find_package)

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

I have tried to compile by hand artoolkits, but nothing happens.

Thank you for your help. Jonatan AL

It just happened to me today also, and I had to compile artoolkit separately first.

 $ catkin_make --only-pkg-with-deps artoolkit

I don't know the reason, because I've had compiled ar_tools before without experiencing this.

I tried what you said, but even after compiling artoolkit separately, when I compile ar_tools I get the same error with ar_pose again.

ar_tools under LucidOne repository IS catkinized, while at xqms it is still uses rosbuild . I think you mixed the two, if you want to compile under catkin, the is the one to use.

I guess he was using the catkin branch of xqms, while LucidOne repo wasn't catkinized yet.
