I tried compiling the hector quadrotor files as according to the instructions given in the tutorials for hector quadrotor on the ROS page but the instruction catkin_make gives an Cmake Error! how do i overcome this?

Update: The CMake Error :

CMake Error at /opt/ros/jade/share/catkin/cmake/catkinConfig.cmake:75 (find_package):
  Could not find a package configuration file provided by
  "hardware_interface" with any of the following names:


  Add the installation prefix of "hardware_interface" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or
  set "hardware_interface_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above
  files.  If "hardware_interface" provides a separate development package or
  SDK, be sure it has been installed.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  hector_quadrotor/hector_quadrotor_controller/CMakeLists.txt:7 (find_package)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

That means that you dont have the hardware_interface package. If you type pkg-config --list-all | grep hardware_interface it should be listed if it is installed. type this:

sudo apt-get install ros-jade-hardware-interface

i dont have a jade install with me right now so i cant double check, but if the above command doesnt work and apt-get says theres no such package, you'll need to try to install hardware_interface from source.

As a matter of a fact if you look at the wiki page for the package ( ) jade doesnt show up yet as a distro, so youll need to install from source (make sure its the jade branch like the github link above)
