Is catkin_python_setup available when building with catkin_make_isolated?

I'm trying to build a ROS python package on an Intel Edison with Ubilinux. ROS was installed from source, more or less according to the following guide: http://wiki.ros.org/ROSberryPi/Instal...

(The actual installation procedure was: https://github.com/UAVenture/ros-setu... )

To build the package I use the following command inside the catkin workspace:

sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/indigo --pkg package_name

This worked nicely, until I added a setup.py to my package and the catkin_python_setup() routine in CMakeLists.txt, now I get this error:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:21 (catkin_python_setup):
  Unknown CMake command "catkin_python_setup".


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
<== Failed to process package 'package_name': 
  Command '/opt/ros/indigo/env.sh cmake /home/px4/ros_catkin_ws/src/package_name -DCATKIN_DEVEL_PREFIX=/home/px4/ros_catkin_ws/devel_isolated/package_name -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/ros/indigo -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -G Unix Makefiles' returned non-zero exit status 1

Reproduce this error by running:
==> cd /home/px4/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/package_name && /opt/ros/indigo/env.sh cmake /home/px4/ros_catkin_ws/src/package_name -DCATKIN_DEVEL_PREFIX=/home/px4/ros_catkin_ws/devel_isolated/package_name -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/ros/indigo -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -G Unix Makefiles

On my ROS Ubuntu setup I can build the package successfully (with regular catkin_make though).

CMakeLists.txt:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)
project(package_name)


## Find catkin macros and libraries
## if COMPONENTS list like find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS xyz)

## System dependencies are found with CMake's conventions
# find_package(Boost REQUIRED COMPONENTS system)

################################################
## Declare ROS messages, services and actions ##
################################################

## To declare and build messages, services or actions from within this
## package, follow these steps:
## * Let MSG_DEP_SET be the set of packages whose message types you use in
##   your messages/services/actions (e.g. std_msgs, actionlib_msgs, ...).
## * In the file package.xml:
##   * add a build_depend and a run_depend tag for each package in MSG_DEP_SET
##   * If MSG_DEP_SET isn't empty the following dependencies might have been
##     pulled in transitively but can be declared for certainty nonetheless:
##     * add a build_depend tag for "message_generation"
##     * add a run_depend tag for "message_runtime"
## * In this file (CMakeLists.txt):
##   * add "message_generation" and every package in MSG_DEP_SET to
##     find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS ...)
##   * add "message_runtime" and every package in MSG_DEP_SET to
##     catkin_package(CATKIN_DEPENDS ...)
##   * uncomment the add_*_files sections below as needed
##     and list every .msg/.srv/.action file to be processed
##   * uncomment the generate_messages entry below
##   * add every package in MSG_DEP_SET to generate_messages(DEPENDENCIES ...)

## Generate messages in the 'msg' folder
add_message_files(
    FILES
    Message.msg
)

## Generate services in the 'srv' folder
add_service_files(
    FILES
    Service.srv
)

## Generate actions in the 'action' folder
# add_action_files(
#   FILES
#   Action1.action
#   Action2.action

## Generate added messages and services with any dependencies listed here
generate_messages(
    DEPENDENCIES
    std_msgs
    geometry_msgs

I added my CMakeLists.txt. Uh, I just see that I have find_package after catkin_python_setup. Is this relevant? If I had the board right now I would quickly change and try it ;), will do that ASAP.

However, since it works for me on Ubuntu when using catkin_make, is the deps handling different?

Yes, the order matters. When you use catkin_make all packages share the same CMake context and you rely on another package being processed before yours.

Thanks, makes sense. Will update the answer as soon as I was able to try it.

If CMake can't find the catkin function you might not have called find_package(catkin REQUIRED) before. Please post your CMakeLists.txt.

You were right, I had the order wrong. When I put find_package before catkin_python_setup() it works as expected. Thanks!
