i have a Problem with the scan_tools in Ros. I need laser_scan_matcher to build a map without odom by using gmapping. i follow this Site and i get an Error.

Here a list of my Steps:

 parallels@ubuntu:~/ros$ export ROS_PACKAGE_PATH=/home/parallels/ros:/opt/ros/indigo/share:/opt/ros/indigo/stacks
parallels@ubuntu:~/ros$ echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH
parallels@ubuntu:~/ros$ ls
parallels@ubuntu:~/ros$ pwd
parallels@ubuntu:~/ros$ sudo apt-get install git-core

Can anybody help me?

thanks and best regards Max

I'm not familiar with using Macs with ROS, but you are definitely mixing the older build system rosbuild with the new build system catkin. That is probably not what you want to do. Check out newer catkin tutorials on creating workspaces and building with 'catkin_make'.
