I tried catkin_make from the workspace. It only finds one package in the workspace.. the rest dont get compiled.

The rest of the packages don't get compiled.


~/catkin_ws$ echo $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH 

I am not even able to rosrun the executables which got compiled before. I am using ROS after a break, I believe it has something to do with installing move_it.

In some cases rospack profile may help

Based on the output you posted, it looks like the only package catkin_make is finding in your source space (/home/venky/catkin_ws/src) is called fastmarching. Yet you seem to be trying to build a package called robot_setup_tf based on your arguments to catkin_make. There must be something strange about your setup in your source space. Can you edit your question with the output of tree -L 3 /home/venky/catkin_ws/src?

My guess is that you have a package.xml which is blocking the other packages or something strange like that. I think this because you have /home/venky/catkin_ws/src/ua_ros_p3dx on your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH according to the output of rospack profile. This would allow rospack to find it, but would potentially mean catkin_make would not, since catkin_make just looks recursively in the source space, stopping when it finds a package.xml, and does not consider the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH.

Thanks William. I deleted the build and devel directories and tried recompiling. It works now. I dont know why it behaved so strange earlier.
