Hello all,

i'm confused by installing pcl_conversions, dependency for tutorial my_pcl_tutorial. I tried to clone it to indigo_workspace and no problem. The question is, are those method the same or not? Then how to solve by typing sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-pcl-conversions, but i typed sudo apt-get update before (like other answers from the same case)? then still unable to locate the package

Thank you for your answer before :)

I have a 14.04 machine with indigo installed, and installing pcl_conversions through apt works for me (which just confirms that the package is in the repository)

Do u have any idea to solve the problem like this? I just tried to install through apt because few answers from another forum said "have u try sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-pcl-conversions?" but i cloned from github before.
