I'm trying to use this package thero:

But I get this error when I do catkin_make:

    CMake Error at libuvc_ros-master/libuvc_camera/CMakeLists.txt:9 (find_package):

Is this my fault or are there missing config files in this package?

Have you run rosdep to check that you have all package dependencies installed?

Also: that package has been released for Hydro, so if you can, I'd install the binary version (ros-hydro-libuvc-camera).

You first need to install this library called "libuvc", --- AFAIK there is no Ubuntu package yet.
