I was using new drone image of BeagleBone of Indigo, and I am totally new for Indigo.

In the "ls" of my BeagleBone, there is indigo file, and under the indigo only has indigo-isolated file without build, devel, and src.

I was usually download the package into src and catkin_make && install it in the catkin directory in the hydro system.

For instance, one engineer emailed me :

If you are going to connect a camera in Erle-Brain(beaglebone). I recommend you install this usb_cam package.

Put the code in ~/indigo/src. Then you must to be located on ~/indigo (cd ~/indigo). Take in account that ROS has his own compilation chain (don't use cmake). Execute the following command:

catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --pkg usb_cam

But I wasn't to make it sucessfully. It shows:

/root/indigo/install_isolated/lib/ undefined reference to 


collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

make[2]: *** [/root/indigo/devel/lib/usb_cam/usb_cam_node] Error 1

make[1]: *** [usb_cam/CMakeFiles/usb_cam_node.dir/all] Error 2

make: *** [all] Error 2

Invoking "make -j1 -l1” failed

root@beaglebone:~/indigo# rosrun image_view image_view image:=/camera/image

[rospack] Error: package 'image_view' not found


Does anyone able to help me? if so, I'd really appreciated, please !



there are the following that I cannot find my catkin_ws

root@beaglebone:~# ls
ArduCopter.elf  ardupilot  CHANGES.txt  indigo  rt-tests  tools  wifi
root@beaglebone:~# cd indigo/
root@beaglebone:~/indigo# ls
root@beaglebone:~/indigo# cd install_isolated/
root@beaglebone:~/indigo/install_isolated# ls
bin  etc  include  lib  setup.bash  setup.zsh  share

thank you for your quick reply.

This is my question that I have no idea of where the workplace is.

root@beaglebone:~/indigo/install_isolated# ls

bin  etc  lib  setup  setup.zsh  include  setup.bash  share

Could you please teach me the installation step by step?

Well. you can get into catkin_ws/src file first. Then, sudo git clone Then, cd .. and you are in the catkin_ws file which has devel build src . Now, catkin_make, in most times, you will see [100%] Built target usb_cam_node in terminal.

catkin_ws is your workplace. and usb_cam in the catkin_ws/src is your package.

well, I know what you mean. bin etc lib setup setup.zsh include setup.bash share is in your ROS's source. But , what I have said catkin_ws in in your /home. you have to get into your /home first.

Well , I use ubuntu 14.04.

Im using OX to link BeagleBone. I followed you said, getting into the /home but there is only debian under the /home And, there are bin and Desktop under the debian....which are no files inside them....

Well, maybe you can create a file named catkin_ws or other name , its no matter what's the name is. Remember, you have to create a file named src in the file that you have created recently. If you still have any questions, you can read this [ ]

I guess you haven't install usb_cam rightly.

Please use sudo git clone in your workplace's src file.

Then catkin_make in your workplace.

you will find [100%] Built target usb_cam_node in the terminal.

add the workplace into your working place. Like source devel/setup.bash or other command.

finally, you can roslaunch usb_cam 'your_launch_name'.launch

I hope you can make it. :)
