If you've indeed already installed ROS, don't forget to source your /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash (and add it to your ~/.bashrc!)

To execute the command:

> source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash

To add to your ~/.bashrc:

> echo "source /opt/ros/indigo/setup.bash" >> ~/.bashrc
> source ~/.bashrc

You have to source the setup.bash file that goes with it. For example, if you're using ROS Jade on Ubuntu and installed from apt-get, you'd need to first do:

$ source /opt/ros/jade/setup.bash

After sourcing the correct setup file, you'll have catkin_make on your path.

Error msg catkin_make: command not found lead me from Google so I post here in addition to other good answers.

Be sure to have a package catkin available. See wiki, or run if you're on OS where binary is available:

sudo apt-get install ros-%ROSDISTRO%-catkin
sudo apt-get install ros-lunar-catkin        (example for ROS Lunar)
