Hi guys.

I have some problems when I compile the package provided to use Geomagic Touch (formerly Sensable Phantom Omni). I already tried three packages provided for ROS Fuerte ( ), ROS Groovy ( ), and ROS Hydro ( ). Every time I make the package, the errors occur as follows

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/4.6/../../../../lib/ when searching for -lHD /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/gcc/i686-linux-gnu/4.6/../../../../lib/libHDU.a when searching for -lHDU

I already tried the suggestion provided here ( ), using '/usr/lib' directory on my system instead of '/usr/lib64', but the errors are still there. I'm now using ROS Fuerte and Hydro installed on Ubuntu 12.04. I use OpenHaptics 3.4-0.

Best regards, Ataka

I'm also interested in this solution - did you manage to make it working? I got following error while compiling "ROS Node for Sensable Phantom Omni device"on Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS ROS Indigo (/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lncurses collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status)

I also had the same issue. Try compiling the code as a super user ... "sudo -s" and then catkin_make , the code will compile and you will be able to see rviz window. however the model was a bit imperfect but still better than nothing .
