Hi there !

I don't really find a title to my question, but when I try to compile the package I get the folowing errors, I don't know exactly the problem:

could you add your CMakeFile please ?

@Maya I just update my question

I think it would be helpful if you didn't use a screenshot to show the error. Just copy/paste the console output, and format it properly using the 101010 button while editing your question.

OK @gvdhoorn I did

You can probably coalesce all source files into a single library (with the exception of your main node), and then use a single target_link_libraries(..), instead of the many -- single file -- libraries you have now.

The error you are seeing is most likely caused by the fact that the Staubli pkg contains C++ code generated by a really old version of gencpp. The code is in the Staubli/srv/gencpp folder. At least, that is the case on the Subversion server you linked.

In-source builds / code generation were common / accepted practice back then, but with Catkin it is preferable to do an out-of-source build.

I think you should either remove the Staubli/srv/gencpp and build everything using rosmake, or do a proper Catkin migration of the involved packages (see catkin 0.6.11 documentation » How to do common tasks » Package format 1 (legacy) » Building messages, services or actions for the msg/srv generation part).

oh thank you, you are right. I re-generate the service and it works. But the question is what makes you know that the problem is the old version of gencpp ?

Experience, knowledge of the two build systems and of gencpp.

I might be wrong but if I understand correctly, you're staubli package is a ROS package you created. You need to link it in your columbot (great name btw) CMakeList, because it can't find it.

I would guess something like :

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS   roscpp   rospy   std_msgs     your_staubli_package)

And don't forget to put this after your add_executable(MainController src/MainController.cpp) :

target_link_libraries(MainController ${catkin_LIBRARIES})

yes this is what I do actually .

Unfourtunatly it doesn't work I get the same error !

Can you find your staubli package. Try rospack find staubli, what's the output ?

Maya gravatar imageMaya ( 2015-03-29 17:38:07 -0500 )edit

Yes the package staubli works fine.

This is what I get:

ros@ros:~$ rospack find staubli

Okay sorry, end of my knowledge :p. I don't know your code but I think you might have a mistake then more than in the Cmakes. Again, I don't really know sorry :S

Thank you anyways (y)
