Hey, I am new to ROS, So kindly forgive me if this problem is too trivial.

I am trying to interface an Occipital Structure sensor with ROS. I followed a couple of tutorials few among which is

I have the Opnenni2 working and the sensor working on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Now I am trying to make the openni2_camera, opnnni2_launch and rgbd_launch in my catkin workspace, but the make fails as its not finding the library libopenni2 or module openni2.

Console o/p:

-- checking for module 'libopenni2'

-- package 'libopenni2' not found

-- checking for module 'OpenNI2'

-- package 'OpenNI2' not found

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:283 (message): A required package was not found

Call Stack (most recent call first): /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPkgConfig.cmake:337 (_pkg_check_modules_internal) openni2_camera/CMakeLists.txt:13 (pkg_check_modules)

I read in the cmake documentation that CMake first check libraries in the ${CMAKE_MODULE_PATH} so I have also added the path where my resides. "shown below"

akshay@ubuntu:~/catkin_ws$ echo $CMAKE_MODULE_PATH


But the compilation still fails. I’m not sure, how to add the path of the library so that the dependencies are fulfilled.

Kindly HElp!!!!

Yeah, I tried include_directories to include the path where openni2 was built, but didn't work. I tried "sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-openni2-launch" as suggested in a few discussions, and it worked. It also installed the required dependencies so, i was able to get my occipital sensor working.

I think you have some modifications to make to your cMakeLists.txt, like in the find_package or include_directories; or to your package.xml. You should find some help in the followings tutorials :
